    This is Boomer. I got her at the feed store about 3 yrs ago. I am not positive but I think she lays dark brown eggs.

    She is camera shy so this is the best picture I could get of her.
    Thanks

    Hmm. Interesting, pretty colors. Maybe some kind of a sex-link?

    I thought it said eggs instead of legs so here are pictures of the legs and eggs.

    The guy at the feed store said it was a Welsummer but I was looking at pictures and she didn't really look like one. The same guy told me 2 years later that some black silkies were buff orpingtons.
    I just googled wheaten maran and she does look very similar.
    Thank you so much.
