    I'm aware that the father of this little cockerel is an Ameraucana and Columbian mix, but I have no idea what type of chicken the mother Hen is. I don't know who she is either.. and if there is anyone who really knows certain traits of chicken breeds, can you please try and help me pick out what the mother might be? He was just a little egg that I hatched myself a while back, and, sadly, I cannot remember the color of it. I'm really curious on who the Hen is.. I do hope that someone can help me find out.

    We can try, but it's likely you'll never know.

    what breeds of hens are possibilities for the momma spot? It will be easier to rule out breeds than include breeds.

    There are two white leghorn hens and one white Plymouth rock hen that could be the possible mother

    My vote would be the Rock. He looks to heavy bodied to have a Leghorn momma.
