    She just started laying & the eggs are a whitish/cream with a tint of blue/green outside with a slightly darker tint inside.
    I was told she was welsummer x plymouth rock but as far as I know they dont lay blue/green eggs.....?
    Can anyone tell me what they think she might be? I have heard you can tell by their comb, cheeks, legs etc but I'd prefer an experts opinion on her rather than me guessing :)

    Any ideas???

    The photo is slightly fuzzy near her head, she doesnt like staying still for very long!!!

    Looks like she has some Wyandotte in her.

    I think it's safe to say she has some Easter Egger in her. Like you said, the picture's kinda fuzzy by her head, but it appears that she has a pea comb in addition to laying blue/green eggs.

    How blue/green are her eggs? From your description it sounds like they're a very pale blue/green color, which would mean that she's an Easter Egger crossed with a white egg laying breed. Maybe Brown Leghorn?

    Easter egger is a good term for any blue or green egg laying bird. Works for me!
