Friends had a fox visit and only one of their chooks survived . I've adopted it as they no longer want to keep chooks. I'm guessing a mix breed but no idea what, any clues or guesses. (sorry photo quality is a bit crap)

Thank you, I have absolutely no idea so will run with that.
All I was told was it was old and the only chook to survive the fox visit.
Thanks again. :-)

earlobes should be white if it was a leghorn , welsummer ? maybe a cross between the two . if it was small maybe a bit of english game.

Its colouring is similar to my Welsummer hen but completely different body shape.
Thanks for the input.

Yes more leghorn in shape and as has red earlobes has to be a cross., have had both brown leghorns and a welsummer so definitely not a welsummer.
