    I have posted this before but have not gotten any answers. This is my EE "cross" Bailey. The lady I bought her from said she was a EE cross but she was not sure what the cross was. She has blue legs. She lays a sky blue egg. She is 1 1/2 year old. Is she really a cross?

    She could be. Or she's just a beardless EE.

    I have an Easter-egger hen that looks just about like it. It is hard to say if she is crossed or not, since Easter-eggers are a mutt anyway. She could be pure.

    I gave one of my beardless Wheaten's to Sam the Yam... she lays a nice blue egg but she doesn't meet the ameraucana standard.

    Since EE's are all "mutts" that lay tinted eggs, I would say you have an EE. She may be one or two crosses away from a hatchery EE, but there's really no such thing as a "pure" EE. She's cute, and sky blue eggs are always welcomed.

    Here I thought it was just little girls and labradors being named Bailey. Now I have to share my name with chickens too! At least I got there first. I've been Bailey for 33 years (and male for the same length of time...)
