    The comb looks a little off--should be a single comb. The legs should be white (very light pink).

    Yours looks like maybe a White Rock--if the comb is single? Or maybe some sort of mix if the comb isn't single...

    Quote:X2 the legs look a little greenish (willow maybe?) and that looks like it might be a pea comb.

    From the picture, I would have never guessed an EE, I was thinking Delaware. All of my EEs have the signature puffy cheeks. My one EE lays the olive color egg, her mother was golden buff and father EE. She took on the puffy cheeks and slate legs (not as green legged as my other EEs). I thought for sure she would throw a brown egg, but hers is olive color exactly like yours. You might have a mix breed as well.

    delawares, like orpingtons have single combs. That bird has what looks to be a pea comb.
