    I was told she is either a blue Marran or a blue Orphington. She lays creamy tan colored eggs and really light pastel blue eggs. Any ideas?

    Marans normally have a little brown around there necks and feathered legs so I think she maybe a Blue Orpington.

    A hen only lays one color eggs. She genetically can't lay tan eggs one day and blue eggs the next, it's got to be one or the other.

    I don't think she's a Marans or an Orpington. with that comb she's a mixed breed something, maybe someone's blue egger project.
