    Help please, what is she? (Photographed on the left)
    Her breast is sort of a lighter copper color.

    I was told she was a black copper maran, but i just dont think that looks right compared to other photos i have seen.

    Possibly a partridge rock or Rhode island red mix. Is she supposed to be purebred?

    Possibly a hatchery quality Barnevelder. Not a Marans with those yellow legs.

    Definitely not a barnevelder, mine are hatchery birds and their color isn't that far off standards.

    I don't believe she was purebred at all, thats just what they thought she might have been. They weren't really sure though.

    Thats why I was hoping some of you experts on here can help me identify her, so thank you for your thoughts! =)
