    I'm not an expert, but to me it looks like an easter egger. The legs aren't green, but I've heard that since they are mixed they can sometimes come out with legs that are other colors.

    I also think this is an EE. They can have any color legs, don't have to be green.

    my dark cornish girls are much darker, and no poofy cheeks. Their heads look like vultures - all black feathers and very small and flat combs

    They also have a very 'game bird' stance - VERY very long legs and a wide breast. My girls look like chickens on stilts, without much feathering.

    Don't know what your chicken IS, but I don't think it's a dark cornish. Legs are too short, body too stocky and those poofs...

    Did you get your chickens from a hatchery or from someone else? That can help figure out if it is supposed to be a pure bred or could be a 'barnyard special'

    It sounds like she's an EE. Thanks for all of your submissions!
