OK, I have a 28 week old pullet that we got as a day-old chick from an individual who was breeding brown egg layers. The lady said the chick was a buff brahma, and I was inexperienced so I didn't know, then, that BBs had feathered legs. Anyway, this little chick had clean legs with a black chipmunk stripe down her back. She's always been a very spirited chicken and now she's been laying nice sized tan-colored eggs for about a month. I'm very happy with her; she's always been the best buddy and friend of my timid little EE. I just don't know what she could be? She's overall a rusty-reddish color, with black-tipped feathers, a weird little cherry-colored comb that is twisted to one side. And she's got olive legs and a blackish beard and small muffs around her ears. The lady I got her from said her flock is all purebreeds: a Welsummer rooster, plus hens like the golden-laced wyandotte, black star, buff brahma. She was stumped when I told her my girl has grown up to have a beard and ear muffs and she said she doesn't have any auraucanas or ameraucanas or easter eggers in her flock of pure breeds. So...what could my girl be? Her father is the Welsummer roo. I'd love to be able to call her something other than a "barnyard mutt". Does anyone on BYC have a chicken that looks like her? Here are some pictures of her. Her tailfeathers are similar to those long feathers at the end of her wings: black on one side of the feather, with black speckles over a red field on the other side. In the 2nd picture, she's in the foreground. The last two pictures are from about 1 month ago. Thanks for your help!
