    On the left are my two Black Sex Links (brown eggs), on the right is my mystery hen. White ears so white eggs, different eyes, and gray puffy feathers above her tail and on her butt. She has longer spikes on her legs too.

    Anybody know this breed?

    Right, thank you. She was sold to me as a chick under another name so I was never quite sure. Her white eggs are tiny, just like my Auracana's green/blue ones. Before she started laying I was convinced she was another xlink.

    Thanks again!
