    This little girl came from a local feed store - they did not know the breed, said she was an "extra unknown" from a large order. Any thoughts as to breed? I could have sworn her wing feathers were buff, but now they are white.

    Looks like a game judging from the beak and feet. But that's my opinion I could be wrong

    I was going to say that she looks like my Ideal 236, that was supposed to be a Buff Orph, until you mentioned blue legs.

    Here are some photos. Sorry they are a bit dark. Yes, her legs went from yellow to greenish gray, the same color as the three "Ameraucanas" (Easter Eggers?) we purchased at the same time. Some of her neck feathers are now turning buff. So now I'm guessing Easter Egger, a white/ beige variation.

    In the last photo I included one of one of the darker EEs (far right) so you can compare leg color :)

    She is smaller than the EEs we purchased by a half inch or so. Could she be a bantam?
