    She's big and fat like my buff orpington, but BO's don't have that white.

  6. I have three of those! They are New Hampshire Reds, or so I was told when I bought them at 20 weeks old.
    They look exactly like yours and they too lay really well!
    And they are the same size as my BO's.

    No on the New Hampshire Red...they have no white on them and are a darker red...they are often confused with an RIR.

    That looks like one of the golden hybrids...like a comet, cinnamon queen, golden buff..

    Here is a pic of a NHR..she is the one in the back on the right with grits all over her beak....LOL They are real dark red.
