    hi, so i have chickens and have had them over the summers (hence "summerchix") and i have this one really cute hen. who we bought as a chick from a farmer/breeder and i have no idea if she is an easter egger or an ameraucana. she has slate blue legs, lays blue-green eggs, and her coloring appears to be lavender wheaten.??

    she's an EE, right?

    thank you.

    Her feathers are kind of just growing back in on her back

    Is it alright if I bombard this thread with questions?
    We have a cute Mille fleur duccle hen who looks fully grown but I have never seen her lay an egg. We can never tell if an egg is hers because we have silkies that lay also. Do any of you know when her breed usually starts laying? Thanks again!
