    A lovely mixed breed - potentially easter egger, with the bearding that can be seen... depending on which camp you are in regarding what quantifies an Easter egger

    Does it even have a breed? When we first got it as a baby we called it a Plymouth Rock. But then it got more detailed and then I thought it was some kind of a Maran. What do you guys think?

    Lol, touche.
    Some put any mixed breed with some blue egg parentage in the Easter Egger category, others reserve the designation only for those who lay or produce chicks who lay(in case of males) blue/green eggs
