    What makes you think she is a EE? She looks like she could be a pure BO to me.

    The breeder we bought her from said she was an EE, but as she grew, she never showed the puffy cheeks. But she has brown speckles on her tail and wing feathers, and I didn't think BO's had that. So now I'm wondering if she's a mix or pure BO or what?

    It would be hard to say if she is a pure BO or not by just looking at the pic. Of course if she lays a green egg, then you will know if she is a EE. Almost all EE's have a pea comb and beard/muffs thought.

    I just left the Cackle Hatchery site and I was specifically looking at BO's and that looks just like their hens!

    She most definitly looks all BO, but if she has some mix it doesn't show.
