She looks very similar to a couple of my hens. The colour and general markings look like my Welsummer Cross. The spangling on her neck looks like another of my hens who is a real Heinz 47 variety type! I'd go for a Welsummer Cross.

I would sayX welsummer for sure and since the egg colour is not dark ,this would not be on the fathers side . So father could be Sussex (due to type as pointed out ) or even New Hampshire as Mel suggested

These hens are a cross of pure bred brown leghorn over pure bred light sussex. Your photo is excelent, it shows the colour better than mine. Your hen is almost exactly the same colour as these.
The brown leghorn rooster these girls are by, looked like what is called partridge, to me. So i agree that the black in her and body shape comes from sussex. One side of her parentage must be similar in colour to the brown leghorn to get the same colour as mine. Strongly doubt is is leghorn in her breeding though as shape is too rounded and legs too short. Perhaps partridge coloured wyandotte cross light sussex?

Wow she does look like your chooks - except her head is a bit blacker.

But my rooster looks like yours - what type is he? as he is a bitser and I would like to know what he is.

Cheers

Witchjnr, are you referring to my blue/red cockerel in the gallery? He is of similar breeding to the hens. Same brown leghorn rooster over big black hens which had leghorn, Australorp and unknown breeding in them.There is a posibility that the bitzer black hens had Large Araucana in the gene pool also but not sure. There are no green eggs cropping out though. The owner thought that may be where the blue was cropping out from but may also be in her Australorp line. She has a blue pair now of strong Australorp type from her huge black Australorp out of the same bitzer black hens as my blue/red in the gallery.
My big girls lay and egg exactly as you describe your hen to lay. Pinkish, not as dark as the Sussex which they are out of however, the leghorn cross has paled the usual colour of the sussex to very light shade egg.
This the rooster you were thinking of?

I have chicks from this trio,

I have returned to the leghorn type with these chicks, i hope to get the lacing gene into these and create a line of blue laced gold leghorn from them. I don't plan to show them just want a pretty line of egg layers. One pullet has thown back to almost the same colour of her grandfather (brown Leghorn).
