    Well, definitely not a Welsummer - is the comb a single comb that is just flopped over in this shot or?
    I would lean towards a New Hampshire red........

    I agree, it looks like a New Hampshire Red hen.

    My guess would be a New Hampshire or Rhode Island Red crossed with a Buff Rock. She looks too light in color to be a purebred New Hampshire, IMHO. I also don't see any black speckles in her hackle (neck) feathers. She looks a lot like my Rhode Island Red x Buff Orpington pullet, except mine has the white Orpington legs, hence my guess of Buff Rock instead of Buff Orp.

    Cowgirl71!! [​IMG] Where've you been?

    Anyway...if the bird came from a hatchery, probably a New Hamp.
