    I thought I had either a jersey giant or an Australorp but as far as I know, they lay cream-brown eggs.

    I'll upload a picture in a minute when I go out to feed the flock a snack but she is all black with black feet.

    Most likely you have an Easter Egger - less likely, but possible, you have an Ameraucana -- photos will tell the tale.

    EDITED...saw your photos...I say Easter Egger as she does not have a beard or muff which would mean she cannot be an Ameraucana.

    Clean faced Easter Egger would be my best answer - unless there is any chance she was only in the nest where the blue egg was left but did not actually lay it herself.

    Thanks for posting the pic. She's an Easter Egger.

    She's a Easter Egger and should make a good mate for either of the two Easter Egger roosters in the pictures with her.
