    This chicken showed up in my flock a couple of weeks ago and has stayed. Does anyone know what it might be? Thanks for any help.[​IMG]

    Is she laying? Looks like maybe a non bearded Easter egger

    Not sure if she's laying. All my existing hens give me brown eggs but I had a white egg show up yesterday. It is either hers or a new pullet just starting to lay. The only thing is...the white egg I found was a normal to small size egg....not a tiny 1st egg that a pullet would lay, but I can't say for sure. [​IMG]

    It's a single comb.

    I would say my best guess is some sort of easter egger mix. I've got hatchery easter eggers here and they lay white so it is very possible she is hatchery easter egger.

    The white egg is likely hers, she has white earlobes. Nothing jumping out at me, most likely just a pretty crossbred.
