Based on comb, can't tell what breed.

    I love this girl! She's a sweetheart!
    I bought her as an EE chick, but she only lays beige eggs. Her legs and coloring fit the EE profile but her comb doesn't, right? What is she? A fraud most definitely! Lol

    Yep, she's an EE! Her comb is a pea, which is common of the breed. [​IMG]

    x2 (also EEs are mixes that carry the blue egg gene they aren't really a recognized breed)

    Some EE will lay the beige, chances are she is a mix with a brown egg layer and she has the gene from that, but she is definitely and EE.
