Bought her as a chick at a store that is usually good about keeping their breeds properly segregated. The bin was labeled as “assorted Wyandottes,” which is clearly incorrect. She is now 6 months old and looks identical to an “olive egger” that I got from the same store 2 weeks later. I don’t know what color eggs she lays though since I have 12 hens with various egg colors. Any other ideas on breed?

It's not always the store's fault.

While admiring chicks at one of my local feeds stores I watched one flutter up to the side of the bin and drop down into the next bin -- mixing itself without aid of careless store employees. :D

Thanks everyone! Olive egger it is - that would fit with the proportion of eggs colors I’ve been getting. 🙂
