    Normally it would be hard to tell without seeing better pictures of her face and comb.

    BUT, I caught the cheek muff, and I see the green legs. She's an easter egger. They aren't really a "proper" breed, but more of a mixed-breed chicken that lays eggs with the blue tint. If she's been crossed with a brown layer (and most likely has) the eggs will be green.

    Thanks for replying! Here is a picture of her face if that helps.

    She's likely an Easter egger, but with that straight comb it cuts down your likelihood of having blue or green eggs--cream or tan are more likely.

    She does put me in mind of a salmon Faverolle hen, but she doesn't have leg feathers or appear to have 5 toes, plus the color is off.

    She's sure cute!
