    A while ago I got a hen and roo from a friend. They had no idea what they were, they got the eggs from someone else. They have unfeathered feet and the hen lays a big brown egg. Also, I think they're a mix of standard and bantam because theyre medium sized.

    Most likely Easter Eggers, which is name people give to mixes that tend to have certain traits.

    I thought EEs lay blue and green eggs? My hen lays brown ones, and also don't they have the wrong comb?

    Easter Eggers are mixes they don't really have standards. I've had an EE that had a single comb and laid cream colored eggs. I thought d'Uccle mix for a little bit but yours do not have feathered feet.

    EEs don't always lay blue and green eggs, mine always laid light brown eggs. Your chickens look like EEs to me, they're very pretty :)
