    We purchased fertilized eggs which our sweet hen hatched out. They are now six weeks old. Any guesses on breed/sex??

    By the green of its legs but lack of a muff, I'd say EE cross. Looks like a girl to me!

    Easter Egger pullet. Pretty sure she'll lay you some pretty blue eggs, as her color is quite close to a Blue Wheaten, but her leg color signifies she might lay green. (green legs show she's got something else crossed in there, perhaps a brown egg layer)
