    Her name is "Pedo - short for torpedo because her shape reminds me of one! Pure white with green legs & very fast on her feet! Her eyes are a golden color and she does not fit any discription of birds available at the chick farm she came from - was suppose to be a Top hat - or maybe a white rock? But definately not what was ordered - of course I wouldn't change her for the world - she's a cool chick!

    She's an Easter Egger. Looks like a pretty red comb though. How old is she? If she is indeed a girl, she'll lay green eggs for you.

    Well, an Easter Egger is indeed a mutt, but a specific one. It is a mutt with the genes to lay green, blue, or similarly colored eggs (not brown or white) but not match to be a true, purebred Ameraucana or Araucana.

    AhAh Thank you! Well, since I have mostly colored egg layers I'll have to catch her in the act to see what she lays!
