    At a big feed and supply shop. They said she was an Easter egger but she doesn’t look like our previous Easter eggers.

    That is very interesting indeed. I agree she doesn't look like a regular EE. :hmm

    Is she of laying age? Any eggs from her?

    I wonder if she is some sort of Olive Egger.

    She is of age. We’ve had the three above for a little over a week and between them have gotten two white eggs starting today. :idunno

    Possibly a Black Minorca or a Black Andalusian?

    Both those breeds have single combs. This hen spears to have some sort of pea comb.

    To me it looked like a small lopped single comb, but looking again, it’s hard to tell. Not quite right for a pea comb either.

    It looks to me like a pea combed chicken crossed with a floppy single combed chicken.
