    With the face feathering and comb, would vote Easter Egger.

    Thanks! That is what I was thinking, but I am new to having chickens and wanted additional input.

    I'm also thinking an Easter Egger. And, in case you were wondering, she's a pullet. [​IMG]

    I'm hoping she's a pullet. Do you mind telling me why you think that?

    Her comb is a single row pea comb. Male birds with her type of comb tend to get wide ones with three rows. Also, the comb is a pink color instead of red. The neck feathers appear blunt, instead of pointy and long like those of a male. Lastly, though I can't see the entire body, I don't notice any red patchy coloration.
