    Any help here would be appreciated. This bird was in our surprise pack of pullets. He/she is 7 1/2 weeks old. No comb to speak of and is the least friendly of the bunch. She (let's assume pullet) is more bold than the others and will challenge the big chickens for a spot on the top roost. There is another one in the group like her but black. We has a few Faverolles and at first her feathers were identical but no extra toe and now she is shaping up like a long distance runner rather than a sumo wrestler body shape of the Faverolles

    What say ye chicken experts out there? Thanks in advance.

    I'm gonna make a wild guess and say cubalaya pullet!? Even though, in the one picture it stands like a Roo and isn't very friendly. Knowing where you got her might also help!

    It's a Hen and could be a hatchery type Aseel.

    I agree with possibility of an Aseel, especially with the coloring on the neck and head!! Ideal carries the dark aseel and also the cubalayas. Will follow this to see result!! She is a great looking bird, and I would love to have gotten a surprise flock of pullets, if I wasn't set on the Barnvelders!
