    A friend of mine was given eggs from a lady she works for to hatch out and of all the eggs only 1 hatched. She was told these chickens were blue Cochins. Since only 1 hatched the lady told her to just keep it. My friend is only able to keep bantams as her coop is to small for large breed chickens, so I took her. I was told she's 7-8 weeks. When I got her I knew first thing that this is not a blue cochin! I do believe it's a pullet and she told me she hatched from a large bluish egg and she has puffy white cheeks which makes me believe she is a black ameraucana. Thoughts on this?? We call her oddball for now :confused:

    Probably an EE (Easter Egger).

    She could be a black Ameraucana. When she lays, if she lays blue eggs, that's what I'd call her. If she lays green eggs, EE.
