    Looks like an Easter Egger to me, with that pea comb and green legs. I've got one that could be her twin.

    She also looks like my brahma girls. Does she have feathered legs?

    No feathered legs. I have a pair of them I got at an auction. They are very pretty with the variegated coloring.

    Not a welsummer, she looks to be a mixed breed.

    Then not a brahma for sure. Must be an EE. She's pretty!

    thank you. I have ameraucanas and rhode islands and barred plymouth rock and some others I am not sure of. I am looking to get some French black copper marans this spring. I want the dark dark eggs to add to my pretty variety.

    Welsummer hen is much different in appearance. For sure not one. Looks to be Easter Egger..no single comb or fester plumage identifies it as even a mix of Welsummer. From what I see in the picture..the dark colored legs eliminate it automatic.

    She s not a Welsummer, she have( as far as I can see!) green shanks, and not a yellow ones, that makes here a good EE candidate !
