    Any guess as to what mix she might be? She is about 3 months old.[​IMG]

    With the white legs, she's going to have to have a breed in her that has white legs since that's a dominant trait.

    Off the top of my head, breeds with white legs are Orpingtons, Sussex, Faverolles (but they are feathered and have 5 toes), Dorking (also 5 toes) and Marans. Basically European breeds. She could have 1 parent with yellow legs since that's recessive.

    eta: and I think also Old English Game, but I really don't know that breed so am not 100% sure.

    Not sure about the breed mix beyond that. She sure is really pretty though. Where did she come from? Any chance you have a few choices of hens/roos to help eliminate some of the contenders?

    Looking at her, Sussex comes to mind.
