    Gerty was to be a Copper Maran...she has a fluffy beard, a few feathers on her legs, blue grey coloring that is broken up by very few scattered black/dark blue spots. She came from a farm with Turkens, Silkies, Copper Marans and others that remain UCO's (Unidentified Clucking Objects). I think she is a pretty sweet little mutt, but this is my 1st chicken and I really dont know squat [​IMG]

    I"m pretty new to chickens myself, so I can't guess, but I have to say that last picture made me crack up! [​IMG] She's a pretty girl!

    She looks like an Ameracauna or EE cross. She could be an olive egger which is a EE or Ameracauna X Dark Laying breed, i.e. BCM. I think she is gorgeous and is welcome at my house anytime. [​IMG]

    Quote:Now that you mentioned it!...the lady told me she had olive egger hatching eggs, and asked if I wanted some extras...I said no just a dozen, but she gave me 14 and told me she threw in some extras anyway, 2 of the eggs were blue, and thats what gerty hatched from...a blue egg.

    Quote:Agreed. If it weren't for the bronze color in the hackles and the feathered legs (I see feathers, don't I?) then she'd be a blue Ameraucana. Most likely an Olive Egger with those feathered legs. If you don't want her, I'll add her to my little flock. [​IMG]

    There you go. You'd better hang onto her. Folks'll be knocking your door down to get some of her pretty eggs. [​IMG]

    Yeah, sure...you would have to pry Gerty from my cold dead hands...she is the baby and the 1st animal we have had that we have actually considered getting "diapers" for [​IMG]
