We have been told she is a Splash? What breed though?

    Is this a Splash Maran? Her name is Jessie and she is also a 4H showmanship prospect:

    She doesn't look to have a straight comb? Marans have straight combs...if you could get a better pic would be great. Do you have an idea what color eggs she lays?

    That looks like a rose comb to me from the pics - hard to tell, no close up. If that's the case, I would say she's a splash Wyandotte.

    I tried to get better pictures. She is onto me though and doesn't want to cooperate. Trying to figure out who is laying dark brown freckled eggs.

    Looks like she could be a hatchery quality Splash Wyandotte. Where did you get her?

    We got her as an egg from a friend. He got most of chickens from breeders, but they were mixed together in his pen.

    Just got a hold of him. He had both Marans and Wyandottes in the mix.
