    This bird is 11 weeks old and the last one I need to identify. I am thinking hen as the rest of my flocks Roo's combs are more red. Its legs are a very pale blueish..

    Looks like some sort of mix, I have no idea on the breed, though looks like a pullet. Slate legs, single comb, production-red-type feathers... where did you get her?

    Yeah could be a mutt from McMurray hatchery. They were trying to tell me its an americana/aracanu. notice the "i", their mutt designator, but with straight comb and only slightly colored legs I was kinda hoping for a more definite breed.

    It looks alot like the hatchery EEs I used to have. There was alot of variance in combs, feather, leg and egg color (some of them didn't even lay blue or green eggs).
