    An someone please tell me what breed this is? She's very moody almost mean. She's a bully to anything her size or smaller and has pecked me on more than one occasion.
    Thanks!

    Lol thank you! She doesn't really have a name other than jerkface! And if she keeps picking on my Hawkie Belle she's gonna be living somewhere else!

    If you wanted to "reset" the pecking order, then take her out of the coop for a week or so, outta sight and all. Maybe keep her in a pet carrier in the garage or something. Then return her, and she will be at the bottom of the pecking order, and she won't be bothering anyone for a while.

    I had actually thought about doing that but was afraid that since Hawkie Belle weighs 1 pound and this girl weighs about 6 pounds, she'd pick on Hawkie Belle that much more while establishing her position.

    My first instinct was to say she is a Welsummer. However, her legs are dark and that rules out Welsummer. My best guess is that she is one of the many colors of Araucona/Americana that are out there. I have 9 and every one is a different color, some have the feathered "chops" around their throat and some have the simple comb and waddle. But they do ALL have the dark greenish/grey legs. And their attitudes aren't as friendly as some others.

    Are you getting brown or green eggs from her? Welsummer lay a VERY dark, almost chocolate colored egg, and the Americana lay a green/blue. She could even be a cross, I believe that Astralorps also have the dark legs.

    She is lovely, maybe with some handling and stepping into the pecking order may help. Not every chicken is a pet.

    It looks like a partridge plymouth rock, but I don't think they have black legs. Sorry she's mean. You can try keeping her by herself for at least a week then putting her back into the flock and see if she changes her ways. Def a hen.

    Thanks for all y'all's input! I don't believe she's a wyandotte or welsummer. The closest pic to her would be the partridge plymouth rock. She's very red in color...I guess that's what's throwing me off so much. And I don't know which eggs are hers or even if she's laying yet. I have had some dark eggs but nothing super dark. I just dunno :-(

    I don't think so. The pattern is very similar but where the barnevelder is has a lot of black, my girl has a lot of red and very little black.

    I wish she were though cuz that's a cool looking chicken!

    Is there a chance that she is a cross?? If you take the white out of a speckled sussex and add the dark legs of an australorp, she could be close.

    Or a Partridge Rock/ Astralorp. HHHmmmm, quite the mystery! It's those dark legs!!

    ;)

    I'm thinking definitely a mix, she's pretty. And maybe the black was trumped by that red head? No telling really, she's definitely a keeper.
