    Does anyone know what breed this pullet is? I have 2 of them. The rest of the flock are rir and leghorn.

    Thank you. I wasn't quite sure what they were. I'll have to look up some info on them. I'm a chicken newbie.

    Can you get a profile pic? Do you know how old the bird is, and where they came from?

    That isn't an Easter Egger. I think Sunshine0235 is right, looks more like an Orloff pullet.

    With the yellow legs and white speckled, brown body, I agree, it's a Russian Orloff pullet.

    I was also getting an Orloff vibe, that's why I wanted better pics. It would be unusual to get them from a farm store, and if that's what it is, it's not very good quality, but sometimes from hatcheries you get what you get.
