    What mix is this hen. She is a tad smaller than the rest of the hens and lays a creamy smaller egg. She has a little bit of feathering on her legs and a dark beard. The person I got her from said she was a Banty Brahma mix...... Maybe an EE mix?

    EE mixed with ??? Some Brahma or Cochin in there somewhere... either way, she's nice looking!


    (I hesitate to ever use the word "cute" - but she is, lol.)

    Given the way her comb looks, I would suspect she is crossed with a single combed breed. Her beard looks like it has mille fleur markings on it. D'Uccles are bearded, single combed, and have feathered legs and they come in the mille fleur coloration. If she were a Brahma/D'Uccle cross I would expect her to have heavier feathered legs. So, I would lean more towards D'Uccle/EE cross.

    I would say, due to her "stance" and the lankiness that she is a EE x Brahma.
