    Okay I bought this chicken from Atwoods as a chick. Cute as a little one....black feet and thought
    it may have been a black maran. Well the older it got, I am not so sure! No cone and she is so black
    that she has blue tints in her feathering. Any ideas as to what I may have here? She has not started laying yet so not sure what color of eggs she will lay. If anyone has a clue please let me know.
    Thanks,
    Pat

    Thanks! What color eggs will she lay? She should start laying at any time, she is about 5 months. Although it has been quite hot, she
    may not lay until it cools.
    Thanks for your input.

    Sumatras lay eggs that are white or slightly tinted in color.
