    It is what's referred to here as an "Easter Egger" ; a bird that does not conform to any breed standard & lays blue/green eggs.

    Looks like an Easter Egger pullet. EEs are mixed breed chickens, usually with Ameraucana or Araucana in their ancestry, that can be almost any color and have many different features. Their only defining quality is that they lay colored (blue, green, pink, brown, etc.) eggs.
