    I'd say if she is laying green eggs then she is an EE.......

    I'd say debiraymond is right. Your bird is an EE cross.

    Show us pics of her, if you have some. I'd like to see her. I have a pullet who lays pretty, round green eggs. Her daddy is a BR and her mama is a Blue Ameraucana, so I guess that makes her an EE. Yep, sounds like you have a possible Del/EE or Ameraucana cross.

    Oh no, I could sell my girl as a Deleware. I will snap a pic tomorrow and post. We had always thout that the little game looking hen was laying the green ones, but she was lost to a hawk a couple of days ago. we are down to 3 mixed hatch chickens about 14 weeks old, a red star/comet and the Deleware. (mixed I guess) Wait till you see her pics, she'll be famous!![​IMG]

    YUP.....my mother has a girl who looks almost identical to her. She hasn't started laying yet so we are just HOPING for green eggs but we KNOW she is an EE cross because I hatched her from one of my mom's EE eggs. [​IMG]

    I bought her from a sale so I have no idea of parents.

    The comb is not a defined single comb. It looks like my Panda's comb from her single combed daddy and pea-combed mother. Panda is BR over Ameraucana and she lays green eggs. I'd bet anything yours is a Delaware/EE cross.
