    Hi! I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure she's a girl, and not an Easter Egger. She doesn't have any puffy cheeks which is why I don't think she is one. Whatever breed she does turn out to be though, she's definitely a beautiful baby! [​IMG]

    That's what I thought too.. I have 2 of them. One with a light orange comb and the other has a pink one with shiny green tail feathers. I'm still hoping it's a pullet but I'm losing hope lol. :) I'm most interested in the breed. :)

    Saying "Easter Egger" is basically saying its a "mix". Easter Eggers can have any comb type, lay any color egg, have "puffy" or not have them. So basically she is a mix and a very pretty one :)!

    EEs are mixes, but they are part Araucana or Ameraucana.
