    Back in the beginning of summer I ordered an assortment of "rare breeds" from Meyer Hatchery and she is the only one we that we still need to figure out what breed she is. I'll try to include a picture of her comb but she has a V-shaped ( I think?) comb. She is quiet and calm but doesn't really enjoy being held. We just adore her and would love to know what breed she is.

    She is the brown chicken in the background. Her name is "Tulip".

    Here is the best picture of her comb that I have.


    Thanks so much for your help!

    Yeah she reminds me of a Buttercup too, and I am pretty sure they are sold at that hatchery.

    Here are some pictures I found of them.

    Thank you so much! She is a really beautiful chicken. My 8 year old daughter has claimed her for her own. [​IMG]

    I am blown away by the pictures of Buttercup hen. I'm sure that's what she is now that I've seen them. I really appreciate everyone's help and opinions! This is our first flock and we are learning as we go.[​IMG]
