    Hello! I'm new here. ^__^ I have a bunch of laying hens, and one included in my last purchase is a bit of a mystery to me. We've named her Bacon, and if she's laying, I don't know what color her eggs are. Has anyone seen a breed like this? She's pretty distinctive looking, but easily could be a kind of backyard mix. Let me know what you think! Thanks in advance for any help! It won't let me post pictures, so I've linked to a few photos of her on my IG.

    Bacon looks like an Easter Egger or some other mix to me. She could lay blue, green or brown eggs if she is an EE [​IMG]

    Thanks for your reply! She was in a pen that did have some EE mixes, so I'm hoping she's an EE mix of some kind. She has bluegreen legs. We /think/ we've received a blue green egg that could have been from her, but she could also deliver brown. I've never seen her on the nest. Thanks so for the welcome!

    Your welcome [​IMG]

    Also I think blue-green legs usually means an EE that will lay blue-green eggs. But not 100% sure on that.

    She laid an egg today! It was blue green. I suppose that solves that mystery! Fantastic. Thanks again!
