    Someone gave me this. Said it was Ameracauna. Also got another one that is more black but has the same shading on the neck.

    Said she was 12 weeks old. Don't know how the tail feathers were lost.

    EE mixed with another breed, maybe Welsummer? It will be very interesting what color eggs she'll lay.

    They go through a mini molt at around this age. That's why the tail feathers are missing/falling out.

    thanks nicole.

    some of my older hens seem to be pre-molting because their feathers are thinning out and they aren't laying as much. i thought they only molted in fall.

    this EE mix (Biscuit) lays green eggs.

    You can see her drop one in this YT vid.
