    What breed is this hen? She lays light brown eggs. She has feathered feet. And she is black/brown laced.

    She looks like a dark Partridge cochin.

    Probably a hatchery-quality Partridge Cochin. She could also be a mix of a few breeds.

    x2 I was going to get one this year but the hatching wasn't good and instead I got 2 White Leghorns. [​IMG]

    She is pretty. One day she just showed up and started hanging out with the other hens. Asked around to see who she belonged to but no one claimed her.

    I had a White leghorn and loved her huge white eggs every day (definitely recommend them).

    Yes, my Leghorns are very friendly they love being pet and occasionally walk over towards to see what's going on.
