    She's supposed to be a buff orpington. Obviously not. She is 5 months old. I don't see any starter crom or waddles like I do on my other girls (buff orp, leghorns, barred rocks, RIR, NH red)

    She looks like an Eadter Egger. With her puffy little cheeks. Are her legs greenish?

    Definitely a pullet. Looks to be an EE or might even be an Ameraucana. What color are her legs?

    She is a white easter egger/ameraucana. Those puffy cheeks and beard give it away and the tiny comb, lack of waddles and feathering mean she's a pullet for sure. Might not be what you thought but I think that blue eggs would be a pleasant surprise.

    Here's another picture of her. I didn't know about easter Eggers (other than aruacanas). She does appear to have green legs.

    Does this mean we will be getting blue eggs or is that still rare?

    That's a nice looking EE. If she were Ameraucana, her legs would be grey/black. She will most likely lay a green egg but there are always exceptions.

    You'll likely get blue or green eggs from her. There are lots of shades possible, so it will be cool to see what she lays [​IMG]
