Unsure of breed

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A buddy of mine gave me 6 hens a few weeks ago he told me they were 3-barred rocks and 3-easter eggers I know 3 are BR and 2 are EE but one looks different is a little bigger than the rest not sure how old they are and they are not laying yet any help would be great

possibly a campine (I don't know what standards are for the breed) but EE are basically mutts of the chicken world they can be any mix , any color, shape, leg color, feathers vs. non feathered feet, muffs no muffs, beard, no beard, tufts no tufts, etc. My main guess is just an odd EE.

I had an Easter Egger that looked just like that. Not a Campine, they have single combs and white earlobes.

She looks like an Easter egger to me, just without the beard. Her pea comb means she's still likely to lay colored eggs for you. What a nice little flock :)

Thanks for the info everyone being new to the chicken world i didn't realize easter eggers could look that much different or maybe I'm over looking the similarities do to lack of knowledge

Easter eggers is not breed but rather a name given to a mixed breed bird that lays coloured eggs. They can therefore look very different to each other depending on which breeds were used as parent stock. They often have pea combs and green legs and beards but none of those are essential characteristics. 

 

She's certainly a bonny bird.
