    What is this chicken? I bought her because she looked neat. She was in a pen with some Rhode Islands and others that looked similar to this one.

    Thanks!

    Can't see her comb well but she may be a New Hampshire, or a production red.

    Thanks for the replies. Well maybe she is part Rhode Island? Her tail sticks up like a leghorn, also.

    She looks like a New Hampsire Red. They have the darker tail feathers like that

    she looks like a game mix. RIR and New Hamps are a lot darker than this and are red not buff in color like she is...she could very well just be a barnyard mix

    So she's a mutt chicken. She has a pointed, narrow face and neck and reminds me of some kind of chicken you would see in a tropical setting.
