I have adopted some new chickens and I am aware that this chicken has another name to the one I have been given.  The name I was told is a nickname I believe, calling this chicken a 'Dalmation'.  I am wanting to know its propper name if anyone knows it. She is white with black spots. She lays white eggs. I am trying to get a photo up to show you but am having trouble because it is too big. But for now does anyone recognise the discription,
thanks tlc

Thankyou Bami

I think the first link is the one. She also layes a small white egg. I have a silver wyandotte too. If you could let me know the name of the first one that would be great.
