    This is Sarah :) She lays olive eggs but does not have a beard or muffs. She does have a peacomb and yellow legs. She is a fiesty little hen. Kinda hyper...haha. I was beginning to wonder if she would ever lay eggs but she finally did!

    If she lays olive eggs and has a pea comb, she's perhaps an olive egger. Maybe an Easter Egger x Welsummer.

    She's probably an Olive Egger or Easter Egger.

    Either an Easter Egger or a "barnyard mix". It depends on what color eggs she lays.

    If she lays olive colored eggs, then she's probably an Olive Egger (thats how they got their name).

    Bantamlover's correct. Your bird is probably more correctly called an Olive Egger. Though, really, Olive Eggers are Easter Eggers because they lay colored eggs.
