Easter Eggers legs run from green to slate -- and their body can be any color. They do tend to have tufts at their cheeks or even fully beards. I have had Easter Eggers and yours does not really look similar -- but it is one breed whose appearance eanges wildly.

They lay blue/green/beige eggs.

I know, not really helpful.

Yeah Im Pretty Sure She's An Easter Egger But Im Still Confused On Why She as Different Colored Eggs And No Puffy Cheeks Yet. But She Is Still Only A Month So I'll Just Have 2 Wait And See.

As EE's tend to be mixed with other breeds, hence all the variations in colors, she may have lost the tufted-puffy cheek gene. Or she may develop a bit of a beard over time. As for the colored eggs... that is their claim to fame. Puebreeds -- Ameracaunas and Auracanas (the spelling here is likely way off) lay blue/green eggs. When they are mixed with other breeds the egg color gene tends to hang on for dear life.

Enjoy your hens,
Jenny
