    Does anyone know what she is? She has sporadic feather covering on her feet.

    Does she have a pea comb? Looks like she has a beard. Before I saw that, I was going to say Buff Brahma, but the body size/shape is all wrong. I think she's an Easter Egger with feather stubs on her legs or just a cross. The white legs are wrong for a Brahma, certainly.

    How old is this one? Looks like a mutt with possibly some Brahma but I would agree that it is probably an EE. But from the hackle and the spur points on the legs, looks like it might turn out to be a roo.

    Good to know cheeptrick. Never had Lakenvelders so I wouldn't disagree with you.

    Here is her face. I think she is 7 to 8 weeks old.
    She may be a mutt, she was bought at the feed store from a local hatch.

    Spurs dont grow on roos for months and months. All chickens have the little bumps there. And the hackles appear pointy more due to the coloration of them. My Buff Brahma and Lt. Brahma girls have the hackles like that, but they're 2 yr old ladies.
    If this is a pea comb, it's not a Lakenvelder.

    From the last pic, I'd say an Easter Egger type.

    No, to me, she looks nothing like a Lakenvelder. They have black hackles, sickles and a single comb.
