    This is a hen I hatched myself we got the egg from a friend and I'm curious what breed she is. She lays light blue eggs and she looked like an australorp chick.

    She's a mixed breed bird. Since she lays colored eggs, feel free to call her an Easter Egger.

    She's black based, and Aussies are black, that's the similarity as a chick. But she's clearly not an Australorp. She has that funky mixed comb, she has silver leakage, and she lays colored eggs.
