    Mae, she's shy with people but holds her own with the flock. Any ideas what she might have in her background to make the cool coloring?

    It's hard to tell from the picture, but does she have a rose colored breast? Is her comb a peacomb?

    Resembles the pea comb more so than the single...super short, but only one row of nubs. No red on her breast. She has blue/gray feet though, which are kind of neat. I find her quite pretty and was just curious. Thanks for any guesses!

    If a peacomb type the most common place to get that would be an easter egger... but odd that she would be such a black tailed buff and she doesn't seem to have any patterning if an EE mix?

    She looks like a new hampshire red except for those legs, maybe she's an easter egger mixed with an NHR ( because of that pea comb).[​IMG] What color eggs does she lay?

    No eggs yet. I don't think she's far from laying tho. She shows some interest in the nesting boxes.

    Well if she layed the mystery egg this morning it was a light creamy brown much like one of my girl with a ruffled face.

    Some EEs lay brown and white eggs, it happens when they are crossed too much with other production breeds.

    Makes sense. It's still pretty. She's a cutie I think too. I have one ruffle face left to start laying.
