    What kind of chicken is this and did she lay the light peach egg in the front?
    I have been getting huge eggs with three yolks this one look normal size but is the same color.

    She weight a good solid 10 lbs. she seem to being laying 3-6 mostly shell less eggs then next soft shell
    with this (I assume) one and two huge one to start. I feed layer mix with oyster.

    I bought her as a Cornish rock hen. She is the only one of them who is making it but she never acted like the rest. she can and does keep up to the rest of my hens. Although this is the one Mel the mallard really seems to like. She seem to eat more then the others. She can fly for short distances.

    So what is the final say?

    Yes- she looks like a white rock, but her legs are a little short. Maybe some cornish in there.

    Yes, White Rock. And I think that's just all fluff. I saw some REALLY big White Rocks at the county fair this year and they were huge thanks to their big fluffy feathers.

    She looks larger than my White Rock but she is not a meatie her feet are to small. Is there a White Giant by any chance. Her comb is floppy compared to my White Rock Comb.

    Huh....congrats! Looks like you've raised a broiler bird to sexual maturity!

    No, it's not a Jersey Giant. White Jersey Giants have willow colored legs and feet.

    She appears to me to be a disapproving chicken.
