    She has beard, feathered feet, has yet to lay eggs so not sure of color of eggs.

    This blue hen is the HARDEST bird to get a photo of but wondering what breed/breeds she is


    Every picture I tried she turned and ran (camera shy I guess) She is bearded


    This is her as a baby the last time I think I have gotten a face shot lol

    Quote:Thanks then maybe she is the hen that started laying the green eggs? I have 2 other EE hens, One I know lays a blue color and I think the other hen is still to young, so this maybe the lady laying the olive colored??

    Where did you get her from? Might be a "Olive egger", an EE/Marans cross, but those dont usually have that much foot feathering.
