    Thanks!

    ETA: (some words of the owner)

    I am not sure what kind she is, I just know that she is a pure bred chicken that I got at C&C hatchery...She is the white one in the photo attached. She actually laid eggs all winter unlike my other hens, so she is normally a good layer and lays white eggs.



    Please dont turn this thread into a bash on C & C hatchery..... focus on my "Broofy"





    ------------------UPDATE WITH NEW PIC 4/17-----------------------

    I don't think it's a CA white... I'd love to figure that one out.

    WHAT is a Cali White though?!? Is it another one of those names someone assigned to get a higher price? I've never heard of them.

    Quote:Leghorns w/ black flecks and they lay well. I have a CA White X Porecelain D'uccle. She lays me a nice cream colored egg every other day... like clock work.

    But both Cali Whites and Andalusians are non setters right? It's broody.

    We had a leghorn go broody on us when I was a kid. I have no clue about Andalusians.
