    A buddy of mine just gave a hen that is a couple years old. She's really pretty, but I just can't figure out what she is. I'll have a pic of her tomorrow. She has a really spiky comb and large waddles. She's about the size of a Barred Rock. She's also White based with buff high lights. The buddy I got her from fights roosters. Of course I don't agree with that AT ALL, but I was willing to save a poor breeding hen. Never seen anything like her. PICS BELOW!!!

    Any ideas??? These pics don't show her color very well. She actually has bright buff highlights.

    Could not be a Buff Minorca but perhaps a Buff Leghorn?

    Quote:The Ideal236 is lookin pretty possible...only buff. Also a buff leghorn is possible. She may be just a mystery hen.
