    Someone gave this hen to me and I'm wondering what breed she is. She is dark brown with a single comb, longish black tail feathers, and a small greenish spot on each cheek! She's a bit on the smaller size, but she's only about 5 months old so maybe she's still filling out?? Is she a cross breed? Any ideas or thoughts are much appreciated.

    What they said. Looks like white eggs aren't far away!
