    When I got her, the person seemed vague. They said she might be a Buff Orpington X so that's what I've always called her. But having seen purebred Buff Orpingtons, I'm now unsure. Could she be the golden variety of the red sex-link??

    Her color looks like blue partridge but I don't know what breed besides Wyandottes come in that color (her single comb pretty much eliminates that as a possibility). The pic is of a pair of Blue Partridge Wyandottes --

    I would have to say Welsummer too.

    Oh, also does she lay eggs? Welsummer eggs are supposed to be very dark.

    Quote:Hers are very light brown, so I guess not. Here is one:

    That seems like a pretty exotic breed, anyway. She was not at the kinda place that has exotic breeds--just a lady who has chickens. [​IMG]

    Young one here, but would be close to the same coloring when older:

    I have two buff orpmix pullets that have that same feather pattern. They're both 1/2 sumatra, so must be that color patern is on the orp side. Although one has the golden lines in her feathers and one has white lines. But the pattern is the same.

    Huh, ok! That does look similar. So I guess she COULD be a buff orp X then. I'll just keep calling her that. [​IMG]
