    I think you have a girl. Could be EE, not sure but she is pretty.

    Is that comb sort of V-shaped? Could be Buttercup. I've seen markings like those on Easter Eggers, too, but they almost always have pea combs. Both breeds have the green legs. I'll go a little further out on a limb and say that if it's a Buttercup, it's very likely a pullet, because of the markings.

    I would say Easter Egger. There are practically no pure breeds that have green legs - none that are common, anyway. I have a seen a lot of EEs that look like that. The comb will be telling, a Sicilian Buttercup has a comb like no other - I can't tell from the picture if the comb looks like a buttercup. If it is small and flat it is almost certainly EE!

    Definitely a pullet, and the green legs suggest an Easter Egger. Her feathers look like a Campine's though.
