Um, what do you suppose she came from? *Update more pics* OEGB?

    I have a bantam hen. Her name is Precious. To make a long story short... my Dad ordered a mix from McMurray about six years ago, there were Polish, EE's, etc. She's the offspring of some of those chickens. All the rest of the remaining flock are EEs and lay green eggs so I assumed she would too. I just inherited them this July about a week after she hatched. Some of the flock were too wild to catch and stayed behind at my Uncle's house. I don't know what they looked like. Precious laid her first egg today and it was off white. What do you suppose she might be? Now I don't think either of the two roos I have were her Daddy! This pic is a couple of weeks old, her comb is a little bigger now. I don't think you can see by the photo that she has almost aqua colored ears if that means anything.

    What i don't get is that she has the EE feet. So then why doesn't she lay a green egg? I thought that trait was dominant? [​IMG]

    That has to be one of the prettiest chickens I have seen in......EVER!!!! Are her legs actually green or are they grey? My mother has some mixes, the father was a Golden Campine...they have slate grey legs, aqua earlobes (which is STRANGE since neither parent did) and all the ones that are not from an EE hen lay lightly brown tinted eggs. I am not saying she looks at all like a golden campine, BTW, I realize she doesn't at all, just saying that got those particular traits.
