    But what the heck am I?? She or he is the cutest chick ever and very friendly. She was the last to hatch from our last setting and was seriously shrink wrapped, my DBF had to help her out of her shell, and we didnt think she was going to make it, but she is one tough little bird and came through. So...any ideas anyone?? she is four weeks old today.

    since she hatched from a little blue egg it has to be an easter egger. Sometimes they tend to throw offspring's without beards. Shes a VERY well marked bird I must say!

    I dunno, I have a little black bantam that lays blue eggs. Not an easter egger.
    She's super tiny with a regular comb, black legs, and red earlobes.
    Don't know what her parents were but I am sure neither of them were easter eggers.

    Anything is possible, I guess!

    if it helps any, she has an itty bitty pea comb and a mohawk, I tried to get a good mohawk shot but she's a little camera shy.

    I was thinking part silver-laced polish. Any possibility of that?

    honestly no clue, do they lay blue eggs too? I do hope she will lay blue, she can go in the olive egger pen and mate with the bcm roo when she grows up.

    No, they lay white, fairly small eggs. But the bit of a mohawk and coloring look very similar to my silver-laced polish crosses. Do you have a picture of the little black, blue-egg-laying bantam?

    Looks like an EE x Polish or something.


    On the blue laying non-EE: A little note - If it is in America, lays blue or green eggs, and is not a purebred Ameraucana or Araucana, it is an Easter Egger. [​IMG]
