    I think this is a pullet, This is one of my first birds I got her in early May. I am guessing she is 16 weeks. She started it all, I got 4 birds the first of May or end of April. She is friendly but standoffish. She will get close, but is camera shy. She was raised by Ethel, my hen turkey.

    She is a siren! I was not going to have more than 4 chickens. After her I ended up buying another 100, not counting the 50 CX's.


    I need to know her breed if possible. I want to avoid anymore like her. I love her, but if I get another one of her type, I could have a 1000 chickens here, and I know my wife would firmly place the pillow over my face while I sleep if that happens.

    She has no red on her, she has black feathers on neck, wing tips and tail. She is beautiful. Very small comb, I believe it is called a pea comb and it is pale pink or flesh colored.

    Looks like a pullet to me. Could you post a picture of her comb? I can't think of any pea combed breeds that look like her. Where did you get her?

    I'll be in the barn!
    she's a pullet..
    I'm thinking she might be some kind of a meat breed. Yes pics of the comb will help identifying breed.

    This pictures shows that your bird has a small single comb, so I think that she is a Delaware.

    Agree, the straight comb, yellow legs and the barring in the black markings all point to Delaware.
