I got it from my uncle and I really like it but im not sure what breed it is. it doesn't have any feathers on its legs, i have two similar but they are more golden, brown and black where this on is black and white. they are pretty big, and super soft.

Well, they aren't a breed. They are cross breeds that often lay blue or green eggs but can also lay brown, pinkish or even white. They come in all sorts of colors and patterns. Ours are more gold and brown, love the silver look of yours.

X2 on keesmom. Easter Eggers are hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown egg layers to produce offspring that lay eggs in colors other than just blue (as keesmom mentioned). Hatcheries and feed stores often incorrectly market their Easter Eggers under the labels Ameraucana or Araucana (both of which are relatively rare and expensive true breeds that lay only blue eggs). There is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html explaining the difference between Easter Eggers, true Ameraucanas, and true Araucanas.
