    This is my hen Bailey (an accidental hatch). I know the breeds of her mother and father however I'm interested to know what you guys think her breed is. The chicks in the photo are her babies (also accidental :barnie)
    It was also a hot day and her babies were being little nightmares so that's why her mouth is open. P1000967.JPG

    White easter egger?
    Also, she has pretty nasty scaly leg mites :/

    Am following, curious about the breed with that color of her beak and legs. Was she using that rubber mallet behind her to discipline her babies?:)

    Yes, unfortunately she does have pretty bad scaly leg mites. She's also always had pretty strange legs. Hoping once the chicks get a bit bigger I'll treat them. I'm a little sceptical to treat while they're so attached to her. But not white easter egger. I should have mentioned that she Is a mix breed.

    Haha don't mind that. We're currently fixing up a chicken coop so there's stuff laying around everywhere haha. I'm not sure people will be able to guess it. I definitely couldn't if I didn't know!

    Possibly somewhere down the line but none that I can see in her parents. Her mother is a common breed of chook and her father is a mix of two breeds. Probably the ugliest (but cute because he's ugly) chicken I have.
