    But she lays eggs that are the exact same color as my australorp eggs. I'm dying to know what's in her. I still think there's some splash Marans, but those yellow legs light brown eggs are throwing me off.

    While I don't know what is in her, I do what isn't.

    I don't think she has any Marans. Marans have white skin, which is dominant. This bird has bright yellow legs.

    I don't think she has any Legbar. Or if so, it's a few generations back. She has no barring, her body shape is pretty rounded, and no crest to speak of.

    Where did you purchase her from? And what country are you in?

    Have no idea what she is except beautiful. See you have a corgi - they are getting very popular out here.

    Thanks! I'm in the US and bought her from someone that was breeding OEs locally. I think they made a mistake along the way. No matter, she's producing lots of eggs and my buyers won't care if they're brown or green. Her combination of features along with her egg color has really thrown me for a loop. The corgi - yes, I have a few that I show in the conformation ring [​IMG] They are so much fun.

    Looks like a pretty crossbred to me.
