    I was given this bird recently, she's sweet, very talkative, incredibly independant, but I don't know what she is.

    Umm people not all bearded birds at automatically EE's. She's got a single comb anyway.



    With that color, high tail set, and single comb - I say she's a D'Anvers cross.

    Quote:And not all birds with green legs are easter eggers, either. Yes, easter eggers are generally a mix, but there is a "look" or "type" to most of them. This hen has the wrong body shape and a straight comb.
