    I’ve scoured the internet plugging in the descriptive features of this chicken and I can’t find one that even looks close! We just acquired her and one white leghorn from a friend who’s moving. She was a wanderer who arrived at a nearby farm, so her past is a mystery! Is her comb supposed to be dark or is it some kind of issue? 435A6405-F95E-4686-87FF-8049000BFE58.jpeg FB56BEB9-7808-446F-BB38-01ABD761ED09.jpeg

    She appears to be a Silkie mix. :) I'm in awe of her loveliness! :love

    Hmm... I believe that Silkies lay white eggs, so that narrows her mix slightly to brown layers. That's as far as I would be able to get, LOL. Especially with you not knowing her past at all.

    Silkie cross. Probably couple generations back.
