    this is a 10 week old pullet hatched to order by a woman who got 90% of the eggs mixed up. She specializes in trading rare breed eggs. She also hatched some araucana x leghorn crosses.

    I ended up getting some sulmtalers, a cream legbar, and a bunch of unknow birds.

    What do you think? (hint: its not the buff orpington that snuck into the photo)

    My best guess would be a Game/Easter Egger mix

    I was kind of wondering about the ee part - she has the head and the comb, but such yellow legs. and her feathers are sleek to her body, very tight.

    I'd say she's a prime candidate for the Leghorn x Araucana crosses the lady is known to do.

    have you seen the crosses look like this? I have two others that I think are the crosses, but they have more ee showing - the ee feathers, even all white, but fluffy. this girl has tight feathers like a pigeon.

    well, thanks for everyone's help. I'm going to count her as an ee mix. wonder if she'll do blue eggs then?

    Quote:If the lady knows what she's doing, yes this girl will lay very pretty blue eggs. One of the reasons EEs are crossed with Leghorns is that it makes for gorgeous blue egg layers. Hopefully she's managing the blue gene right.
