    Hi guys! I bought the 2014-Chicken calendar, and saw this beautiful lady when I flipped to February! I've been searching everywhere and now I thought I should just take a picture, post it, and hope for the best. I really love the way her feathers are and was wondering what breed it is! I'm not an expert in chicken breeds, so I'm stumped. Could I have some help?

    I am not an expert at the different breeds myself! I can identify Leghorns and Orpingtons. That is it! LOL

    But she sure is a beauty! I am sure someone will be along shortly to welcome you and will know what breed she is. But if you can't wait, you can always post this pic in the What Breed section here of BYC for an ID.....

    [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Some sort of Cochin/Cochin bantam, or a mix of that breed.

    She is an exceptionally beautiful color, I don't know if you could find one like her.
