    Hello, first time poster,

    I got 6 chickens at a feed store and never bothered to see if they had a listing of what breeds they were. I just gathered a few from the "Assorted Pullets" bin and hoped for the best.

    At this point, I'm thinking I've got two Leghorns, two Red Stars, and a Black Star. But the last little girl I can't figure out. Her legs are green and she's a little buff on top. The closet I've found is a Golden Penciled Hamburg, but she isn't quite so spotty.

    Any ideas? Larger pic here.

    And here she was as a chick:

    I am betting she is an Easter Egger! Green legs and looks like a little cheek fluff. She should lay you some pretty greenish-blue eggs! [​IMG] She's a beautiful girl!

    beautiful little Easter Egger pullet you got there. I've just started with the EE's, i have 4 that are about 8 weeks old now, and they are neat and funny things.

    Enjoy her and them colored eggs!

    Definitely an EE. Looks just like my EE "Cocoa".
