    Can someone please advise on what breed this is? She was supposed to be a SLW, which she obviously is not!, and had a beautiful painted face as a chick. She is now about 17/18 weeks old From looking at pics, I was thinking either BA or Black Wyandotte. Anyone??
    Thanks!

    Black Australorp or Jersey Giant. Wyandottes (as far as I know) have all yellow legs and feet.


    Check the bottoms of her feet. Pink=BA, yellow=JG. She's a beauty! [​IMG]

    She could be a Marans. Check the color of the bottom of her feet. I think pink is Marans and yellow is Australorp...or its the other way around. [​IMG]

    Quote:OK....just searched on this site about this and found out that white or pinkish feet are Australorp and yellow are JG. I hope she is not a JG [​IMG] Looking forward to mucho eggs and already lost one hen! (well, not really lost, just that one is a roo!). I always did think it would be nice to have a Jersey at some point. She is a little bigger than my other pullets, but only a smidge, so hopefully, she will not have yellow feet!! [​IMG] I think she is one of the prettiest in my flock, and has a very fun personality.

    Thanks for the input!

    I might have langshan on the brain, but that's what she looks like to me.


    Here are ours a few weeks ago, but mine are mixed (at least most are) but they have that greenish tinge that yours seems to have.

    I believe that langshans have feathered legs----at least the one I got from Ideal did.

    Looks like Langshans are out. Not a trace of feathering on her legs. [​IMG]
