thanks, i'm actually glad of that.  i want to breed her with my NHR and i don't think i would have gotten anything cool if she was due to the black sexlink's breeding.  so looks like i might have more surprises from my mystery hen.  in real life in bright sunlight she really is a stunning hen.  her name suits her.  it's front half that's most impressive.  she's brownish black on her tail, but all sorts of reds, and golds on her front.  and she could camoflage in the fall.

here is Autumn's comb shot.  this was the best i could do.  i had to hold her down to get a good pic.

Looks like she might have a 'modified' pea comb. I think that she might be an Easter Egger.

I've got two clean-faced Easter Eggers. Cocoa.

and Snowy.

does her color have a special name?

No special name, most EE chickens don't have a named color. They just sort of remind you of other breeds color patterns. That's what most of us like most about them.

Just random wild-type partridge. Easter Eggers aren't specific colors. They are basically mixed breeds that have at least one gene for blue eggshells, instead of the usual white. You never know what an Easter Egger will end up looking like, and you have no idea what genes they may be carrying.

cool so my chicks and my eggs will be a surprise.  can't wait!  i wanted a mixed flock.  i went to the flea market to buy a wyandotte and ended up with an easter egger which my mom actually wanted anyway, so it's a win win.  now both my roos are brown egg layers.  breeding her with that what color eggs could i expect from the chicks?

It could be a 50/50 split between green layers and brown layers.
