    From far far away lol..... She could be an Easter Egger... Does she have a pea comb (kind of a small, stubby version of single comb)?

    A close up head/body shot would be of great help :)

    Yea I can't get any closer to her. She does not trust me yet.

    Yes she has a pea comb.

    I think the previous owner did say she lays blue eggs. I remember him saying that but can't remember which bird he said.

    I don't think our other ones would lay a blue egg so that must be what she is.

    Thanks!

    Blue eggs; yep, Easter Egger :) She should get more docile once she gets to know you. EEs are usually very friendly, so with time she might let you get closer :)

    I have 3 with beards, and one without; they all kind of have similar features though. Here's a face shot of one of mine, just for comparison....

    Mine doesn't have a beard... she is molting slightly right now so maybe her beard is coming in. The beard is so cute!

    That's what got me, the beards :D I got 4 chicks, 3 of them had beards and muffs from day one; one did not.

    She's my favorite though; lays a slightly mint green egg, almost every day :)

    Here's my beardless one...

    I don't know for sure if they lose their entire beard when molting; I'm thinking if she doesn't have a muff/beard right now, she won't grow one in... But her babies might have them if you let her hatch some chicks ;)

    She is so so soft and smooth. I wish she wasn't so afraid

    She looks like a lovely Easter Egger to me.
