    Not 100% sure but I believe it would be an EE(easter egger).

    You'd get an EE that laid blue or green eggs, with or without tufts, muffs, beard and tail.

    That will be great. I now have a closed flock so if I want any new chickens I will need to breed from within!! EE's are good layers!!

    I've been hatching some for months. I get rumpless and tufted, tailed and tufted, mostly tailed and clean faced with an occasional tufted and tailed with what looks like maybe muffs, I'll have to look closer for beards. I sold all of my EEs so now I just have a Splash Araucana cock with a Blue Collonca and a Black Quetros hens.
