    the white earlobes make me think phoenix or silver leghorn. Can you get a profile pic of her standing naturally?

    Also, what color egg does she lay? Pure white or off-white?

    Phoenix

    (leghorns should have yellow legs)

    She looks a lot like a leghorn except leg color so unless she is a really close looking mix, I guess phoenix as well.

    [​IMG] Agreed. "off' colored legs are not uncommon in many of the leghorn varieties.

    I have many hens and am not sure if she is laying or not. I will try to get a better pic tomorrow and post it. Thanks for the help so far. I have ameracunas, RIRs, production reds, and am getting light blue, dark brown, pinkish, and light brown eggs. I have about 50 chickens,

    Do you have an idea how old she is? Looking back at the pic, her comb is still pretty pale so she may be too young to lay, or older and taking the winter off.
