    This hen was hatched sometime this year under my broody hen. I have no idea what she is. She is very pretty though.

    Was the egg from your own flock or one that you purchased? If the former, what breed(s) do you keep? Is that a straight comb she is sporting - the pictures are great but none seem to show the comb with great clarity.

    The egg was from my hens but I don't know which one. Her comb is a single comb.

    Do you have a barnevelder or dark cornish? It's possible she received the penciling from that or another penciled breed you might have. Could also be something from the roo

    I've never had a penciled hen or rooster. I had an Icelandic rooster awhile ago.

    Just saying...when you're asking a question like this, and the bird is from your own flock, it would sure help to know what parent breeds you're starting out with. Or, if you already have a bunch of mixed breed parent stock, you're just going to have barnyard mix birds.
