    What breed of chicken is nugget? She lays a dark brown egg, but not dark enough to be a Maran egg.( I got her from TSC)

    She looks like a clean legged wheaten marans. I'd be very suprised if TSC had any though. What was the bin labeled as?

    That was my first thought, too. I don't know if wheaton come clean legged, and agree it's kinda a stretch for TSC to have these birds. Also, don't Marans have white legs? This hen has nice bright yellow.

    She may just be a different mix to make a red sex link.

    She was labeled as "red pullet" and it listed several breeds that were in there but I don't remember them all.
