Pullet breed please?

Postby Wozza1985 » 17 Sep 2016, 12:00

I've just been given a hen this morning from a friend but we are not sure what breed it is?
Any ideas?

Thank you

Mixed or mongrel - with a bit of Cream Legbar by the looks of it. You might get coloured eggs.

Right I see, coloured as in mixed colours or one colour? Can hens lay mixed colour eggs? I'm intrigued

Coloured as in possibly blue or olive eggs, because of the cream legbar in the mixed/mongrel breed of hen. ;)
