    I'm not sure what you're looking for. It would seem that those in the know believe it's an Olive Egger hen from a Marans/Legbar cross. She looks female to me but I'm not an expert.

    X2. It will be interesting to see what color eggs she lays. I'm guessing she could have a CCL mother and a cuckoo marans father.

    Definitely a girl. And it looks like our egg color mystery could be solved soon.
