    OK, so any idea on what she might be? Her eggs are dark brown small/medium size and she is smaller than the brahma and maran. They are all roughly 8 months old. Sorry the pics aren't the best but she kept moving [​IMG]. Thank you!

    I was thinking Welsummer also, but then I saw the legs. I thought Welsummer have yellow legs?

    Welsummers have a unique look and she definitely has that look. She has the Welsummer head and coloring.

    I bought 3 "Welsummer" a couple months ago. They were hatched by this guy and bought as eggs from a breeder. Two are the same age, one a week or two younger. One looks correct, the second one has those dark legs, with feathers. The youngest has dark legs.

    I was told this can come from breeders working in Marans trying to make the eggs darker.

    Here they are a few weeks ago.
