    This was a random blue egg we got from somebody, we put it under a broody buff (first hatchling!) but no idea what it actually is. Any idea?

    Well, by definition if it has blue egg genes, it's an Easter egger. Am I seeing feathered legs? And a single comb? could be someone's olive egger. the best way to tell would be to ask the person the egg came from what the choices are.

    Oh, I didn't notice the feathered legs. It's probably a mix.

    there is feathers on the outside of its legs, it's from a coworker and she has no idea what the roo is. She has a lot of various easter egger type chickens, I believe she has 18 total right now and she isn't sure which one laid it

    It could be maybe a Copper Marans (feather legged)/ee or Langshan/EE.

    Well, feathered legs are dominant, so whoever she has that has feathered legs is a contender!
