    This girl is an olive egger from Meyer, where they advertise as having two breeding programs from black copper marans or welsummer x ameraucana or cream legbar. She's the black headed bird in these pictures.

    Well, she's obviously welsummer on the dark egg side. She looks a good bit like my welsummer and has no feathers on her yellow feet. But a black head with no muffs or a tuft? I'm so confused.

    What say you, my more experienced friends?

    I have an Easter egger with similar coloring from MPC, so I would say an Easter egger crossed with welsummer.
