    All I know about this chickens history is that she is about three. She was part of an order for Golden Comet pullets. I bought her for eight dollars and was told she was likely Production Red but supposed to be RSL. She, however, is single combed but has blue legs nothing like a Red Sex-Link ... very similiar to an EE type hen! Is this possible, to have a EE like this? I know that they are pea comb chickens and that is why I am asking for help!

    crossbred NH Red or a very poor example of NH Red. Not an EE.

    Quote:Agreed. Her legs just look blue because they are dirty. Scrub them off and they will look lighter in color - probably a pale yellow or whiteish depending on how well she lays. The longer a yellow-legged hen lays, the paler her legs will get.

    Well some odd genetics tells me that this hen is slate legged. If you look at the pads of her feet, it is still dark and I see some scales that are shiny so no, she would not be yellow legged.
