    My hen is almost two years old now. She has a rose comb and is heavy set. Her head and neck are a light yellow, while her body is white. The tips of her tail feathers are black and she has small dots along the bottom of her neck. She has white legs and lays light brown eggs. I hatched her along with 6 others. They all ended up being Buff Orpingtons. I got them from my neighbor but he doesn't know what breed she is. When she was a chick she looked just like the others but after a few weeks her feathers came in and she was completely white. My guess is a Delaware. IMG_1419.JPG

    She's a mixed breed. If your neighbor that you got the eggs from can tell you what breed his rooster is and what breed his hens are, you might be able to figure out what cross she is.

    Maybe a mix.
    Note: looks like she has a single comb, not rose.

    My bad! I actually meant to write single but got mixed up. Thanks for the correction!
