    I would appreciate it if any of you can tell me what breed I have. I am attaching a photo of Colonel Sandera. She is very sweet, and calm. she is also rather large.[​IMG]

    I don't know a lot about breeds, how big is she? Could she be part Jersey Giant and part EE? Her legs look green to me and I know that EE's have green legs. I don't know if other breeds do.

    How old is it? If it isn't laying eggs, and is younger, 'she' might be a he, kind of looks like pointy saddle feathers.

    The coloring is kind of like a blue copper maran.

    He could be a blue copper Marans cockerel.

    She is 15 weeks, and has already laid. She lays light brown eggs.

    She could be part Jersey Giant. The breeder I bought her from had Marans, Jersey Giants, Amercaunas, dominiques, and something else I can't remember.

    Are you sure of the age? Do they lay at 15 weeks? isn't that really early?

    I am positive about the age. I have had her since she was 2 days old. I think she is very pretty now. I have always loved her great big eyes, however she was a dark grey homely little chick.

    Do you have other birds with her that could have laid it? It looks like a maran which lay dark brown eggs.

    Do you have any straight on side shots of it?
