    oes anyone know what breed of chicken the brown hen in the picture is? (Sorry it's not a very good picture, it's the only one I got of her before she died.) I know the breeds of all the chickens we had at that time, but she didn't look like any of them, so I'm wondering if maybe there was a mix-up at the place we ordered the chicks from.

    I'm not sure... but I know we had white eggs, light brown eggs, and green eggs, just don't know who layed what. I guess it's possible she was an Easter Egger, but the ones I looked at online had very different faces than her.

    From the comb I'd say she's an easter egger, or at least part. They can look like a lot of things, different colors, etc.

    What color are her legs and feet? If they're greenish then she IS an Easter Egger, which she does look like one.

    Not necessarily true. Lots of mixed birds can wind up with greenish colored legs, birds with no easter egger parentage. And some other breeds are bred to have green legs.

    Her comb looks EE, but my EEs have bluish white earlobes, your looks like she had red earlobes. [​IMG]?

    I seem to remember she had normal-colored legs, but I could be wrong. And yes I think she had red earlobes... it looks that way in the picture anyways.

    maybe you can but her in a cage for a day and see what color egg she's laying? or follow her around/watch her if you can?
