    I purchased three favorelles from a local feed store and one of them turned out looking like this.

    It took me a few days to realize she was different. She was the same size as the others when I brought her home. She was the first to feather out so I'm guessing she's about 8-9 weeks old in this photo. Her legs are slate and her first egg is tan. She must be a mutt or a breed I never heard of.

    I still don't know what breed she is. She has greener shanks than by EE but no muff, tuffs or beard. A mutt perhaps? Why would a feed store pass of a mutt as a Favorelle? Any ideas on her lineage?

    The first pic made me think smooth faced araucana because she looks rumpless. SHe has a pea comb so it is probably an EE with no beard or muffs, it happens all the time.

    Here's another photo of her 1st egg. At least she's a she. I didn't want any bantys and figured it would be easier to re-home her if I knew what she was. My SO has become fond of her so I guess she's a keeper.
