Hi all! I have this bantam Cochin hen and I cannot figure out what type she is or what she might be mixed with. She was out of the Tractor Supply bantam bin. I thought she was a silver laced Cochin at first but her feathers seem too detailed for that. She lays the prettiest eggs. What do y’all think?

She's a silver laced, just not up to the standard for color. There may have been some crossing in her ancestry or maybe the hatchery just isn't very selective. Her legs should be yellow, not black, which is another indication of possible impurity. But she's pretty in her own right-- that's what matters for the most part.

Thanks! Yeah, that’s kinda what I was thinking. Sometimes you get some strange things out of tractor supply. 🤷🏻‍♀️
