    We got some birds from a guy on craigslist. 2 of which looked like this...

    (i cannot post a link. [​IMG]

    save one was purple. or gray.

    The bird pictured never got to lay before the dogs got her, but the purple one (looked just the same, but was purple/gray) started laying pretty good. and her eggs were as aqua as they come.

    What the heck kind of bird was she?!

    Sounds like an Easter Egger.

    Was she fluffy, round, and had feathers all over her legs? Did she have a comb that looked like a sawtooth edge? If none of the following, definitely not a Cochin. [​IMG]

    Feel free to add the image here.

    Not sure what my post count has to be before I can post images. :\\

    I meant to add that she had all of those characteristics!

    I think it is a Cochin x Easter Egger.

    Possibly something else in the mix too.
