I posted a photo of this chick when she was five weeks old and kind of looking like a cockerel, some of you may recall …

She was sold to us as a barred rock but she has double lacing on her chest so is clearly some kind of cross. Here she is today at 18 weeks …

She looks like a hen to me but I know sometimes you can’t tell until they lay an egg.

Then today I found this tiny green egg:

We have two Easter eggers so I don’t know if one of them laid a freak egg or if this is my weird chicken’s egg. We have three other pullets same age but two are California whites and should lay white eggs, the other is a light Brahma and just laid her first brown egg yesterday. So, is this mystery chicken a hen after all and is she an Easter egger x barred rock? Any and all guesses welcome!

She is a pullet. Looks to be a mixed breed also, just not sure whats in there exactly.

She does look a lot like the chicken in that photo! I will say, she’s kept us guessing.
