    Bottoms are yellow.

    She's a total sweetheart no matter what. I just have no idea what she is and I'm curious, haha 20180317_194353.jpg

    Looks like a single comb, though. I forgot that part. I'm gonna say hatchery quality Marans or olive egger as my final answer just because I am out of ideas lol. I don't think a cochin would have legs that green even as a young bird.

    Good disposition is the most important thing. I'm leaning olive egger for her. Just can't think of anything else that fits, but there's always the possibility that she's just a Marans with the wrong skin color or a Brahma with the wrong comb type.

    The beak is yellow too so not pure marans if the feathered leg came from marans.

    Edit: well if she is indeed next to a splash marans ... do they have yellow beaks?

    Edit again: no... they should still have pinky undertones
