    This hen was given to me about 6 weeks ago, it was said she was a Jersey Giant.... Most definitely not the case! She's smallish (although a large breed), sleek, everything about her is kind of smooth with relatively tight feathering. She has black legs, a tiny little comb, and white speckles. She reminds me of a Wyandotte in build. She's fast and flighty by nature. I believe she's also laying blue eggs, as I doubt my EE hen is making two eggs a day every day lol. Any thoughts? Could she just be a EE mutt? [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! Still a bit new to this. Had Rhode Island Red chickens as a little kid, but never learned the ins and outs.
    I have another EE but she's got muffs and beard and is much more typical EE in color and appearance to me.
    This really helps solve the mystery!
