    Mystery bird..is this a game mix? Was told it was a "gold lace" something when got it as a chick. Breeder said it was not a wyandotte. She is about 27 weeks. I have a red six link, two barred rock and exchequer leghorn that is laying age. Here is a pic of possibly her egg next to the exchequer and red sex link. Only other option would be the br but didnt think they layed eggs this dark. You can't tell in pics but feathers on her back have a green sheen in sun. She does have some lacing on breast but not like my young slw.

    Can you take better pictures? It's hard to tell, but I'm thinking mixed breed.

    She was uncooperative this morning. I had a hard time getting pics to upload and apologize for duplicated thread. I will try to get a better pic if sun comes out today. I have alot of photo bombers in the flock!

    This is the best side view i can get right now. The other will hopefully show the green in her feathers.

    She's definitely a mixed breed. I'm thinking there's Welsummer there, with the dark egg, straight comb, yellow legs and overall shape. Besides that, not sure what went into the mix. She's a cute, unique little thing for sure [​IMG]

    I am new to chickens and loving my girls. I wanted to eventually get some chocolate and colored egg layers so happy with her whatever she is. Thanks.
