Beautiful color, but what is it?

    I'm pretty sure it's an OEGB, but I can't find anything that mentions this color. She is such a light peach/cream that for a long time I thought she just needed a bath. Some feathers are a bit darker, like our splash hen. (Second pic) 20190520_182215.jpg 20190521_171435.jpg What color should I call her, or is she something else entirely?

    Where did you get her? She looks like a mixed variety to me, given her leg color with that feather color. Also, how old is she?

    Pretty birds! Could be mixed with Faverolles maybe?

    She came from Hoover's Hatchery, through TSC. The only other thing I have heard of with peach color is my porcelain d'Uccles. She's 10-12 weeks old.

    :yai didn't know there was such a thing! I have a trio of beautiful porcelain d'Uccles but this girl looks nothing like them. They are my favorite colors though.

    There isn't. They mean a porcelain d'Uccle. I'm not sure anyone carries porcelain OEGBs anymore

    Oh. This little girl has no feathers on her feet, no cheek puffs and stands like the other OE pullets.
