This chicken came with Delawares when they were less then a week old. The chicken in Question look like a Dal but had a mark similar to the Michigan wolverine's helmet on its head. Now its 9 weeks and I don't know what it is, please help.

 

Thanks

This is from the breed page. I didn't see anything about green legs, just green eggs. :)

 

Easter Eggers

The Easter Egger is not really a breed. They are relationed to the breeds Ameraucanas and Araucanas, then bred with many different breeds so they no longer fit either breed's standards. They usually have muffs & pea combs, but come in nearly every variety and color, some even have ear tufts or are rumpless. Each EE is different, but overall they are usually a smaller bird that lays pink, green, or blue eggs. They are normally friendly and calm, and their colorful eggs make them a popular choice in backyard flocks.

Easter egger and what Lil Bird says is correct thumbsup.gif

 

It's the shape that makes the breed, and the color that makes the variety.
