What Breed Is This Friendly Hen?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Erin~TheChickenLover, Jul 20, 2011.

  1. This is my friendly little hen. Her legs are grey and she has a pea comb (I think). She has large tail feathers compared to her body. She lays a medium sized white egg almost every day. She is small compared to my barred rock but not a bantam (I don't think so anyway). We rescued her and she is probably about 2 years old. Does anyone have any ideas what she might be? She has me stumped!

    she is almost certainly an EE but apparently not one that lays blue/green eggs

  5. Thank you! I love my little girly. All of the other chickens we rescued from the same place are easter eggers, so maybe she is one who just lays white eggs.

    Yep, a pretty Easter Egger. They can lay any color of egg from white to blue/green to brown to "pink". That's part of why they are so popular. Not only do you get a wide variety of colors in the birds themselves but you also can get a wide range of egg colors.
     
  7. Sara, the birds we rescued with her have beards and muffs and look almost exactly like those! She does have a little bit of a beard and muffs.
     

  8. Thanks and neat! She is a special little girlie!

    I have a hen almost the same looking - sold to me as an EE from a hatchery. She laid an olive green egg as her first a few days ago. Yay, an Oliver Egger and I didn't even expect it. Her sisters have not started laying yet.​
