What breed is this?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

This is a hen I hatched myself we got the egg from a friend and I'm curious what breed she is. She lays light blue eggs and she looked like an australorp chick.

She is an Easter Egger.

Agreed

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

Yep. Easter Eggers can be any color.

She's a mixed breed bird. Since she lays colored eggs, feel free to call her an Easter Egger. 

 

She's black based, and Aussies are black, that's the similarity as a chick. But she's clearly not an Australorp. She has that funky mixed comb, she has silver leakage, and she lays colored eggs.
