    Not a Pearl, Might be a Self Blue, Pearl would have Mottling.
    Where did you get it from? Most OEGB should have White legs.

    I got it from a feed store in a bin of assorted bantams. They said they get their chicks from Ideal.
    I saw a pic someone else posted that looked a exactly like her that someone thought was a
    Pearl OEG. Looking at Ideal's site they had loads colors of OEG bantams and I couldn't quite see leg
    colors from the pics. Guess she'll be a mystery a while longer. Maybe I'll wait another week and try
    some new pics.

    Question, what does OEGB stand for? I am really interested in learning what it means. I know what RIR, BO, BA, EE, SLW, and GLW stand for , but I haven't figured this one out yet.

    Most Hatchery Self Blue's are somewhat light.

    Most of mine have been hatchery self blues from several different hatcheries. The ones from Ideal (where this chick came from) have been specially dark grey in all of the orders I have recieved from them. I am almost 100% sure that chick is not self blue with it's lack of a dark beak.
