Here's the chicken. Anyone know what she is or even got a clue?

No matter how much you think you know about horses, there will always be one that'll come along and teach you something new.

I would guess Buff Orpington or Golden Comet. The Golden Comets I used to have had larger combs though.

Where did you get the hen from and is she very big, Chie? She looks like a cross bred to me -- perhaps a brown breed (Rhode Island, CSA, etc) crossed with say something like a white Wyndotte or a Buff Orphington to dilute the colour and keep the comb smaller.

I took a couple more pictures of Bluegill today (no, I don’t know why the girls call her that. She’s their pet.)

They both were on about 12 eggs, the darker hen started pecking on the bicolor chick. Then the lighter hen also started attacking that poor chick.
Decided to take them in, 4th hatched today, also in the house now. Just not willing to risk it.

Any ideas why they would start pecking them like that?

Unfortunately, I'm not sure. I assumed it was because of its coloring, maybe the dark areas seemed like OCD chicken spots (chickens compulsively peck at dark specks) and then evolved to aggression. Or it was different looking than the two mostly solid colored chicks and they didn't like that this one stood out.
There was another that had hatched between #3 & #4, but they pecked at it and it didn't make it even after moving it to the house to finish hatching in peace. It had some slightly darker markings on its body and eyes.
Chickens are loveable dinosaurs, will happily eat each other, though....
