    Easter Egger hen, roosters of that coloration would have a solid black chest and more red in the neck.

    Possibly, as Easter Eggers can lay any egg color. However, usually eggs are green, blue, or brown.

    the color, beard and leg color show EE heritage, but that straight comb means all bets are off as to egg color. The eggs in question don't look white, they look cream/tan, and that color is fair game for her, so she could be the hen in question.
