    Hi all! Please meet Nosy Nelly! She is 19 weeks old now and I'm not sure what breed she is, so I'm hoping you folks will know. Here are some pics from today:

    Here she is back in June at 1 week:

    Back then, she looked a lot like her Ameraucanas sisters, but she doesn't now as they have huge combs and green earlobes whereas hers are red.

    Thanks! I really didn't know what to think since she became so different than the other two. The comb and head/breast coloring are about the exact opposite between her and the two I knew for sure were EE's.

    Easter Eggers are a mixed breed so they can come in all colors, comb types, have beards/muffs/tufts or clean faces. Some have the slate/willow/greenish legs and others have yellow. They're so varied, I can understand how it can throw you off. My starter flock was 4 EE pullets and all but one had clean faces. This is my only survivor from my original flock just to give you an idea of how different they really can look:

    She's a clean-faced Easter Egger. Since Easter Eggers are mixed breeds, no two look alike. They can have many different comb types/shapes, feather color, and other physical features.
