    Hello,
    I am wondering what breed of chicken this is? I got her in August, when she was a few weeks old so she is now around 7 month old. She is laying so I know she is a she. Here is a photo. Thanks for looking! I hope you can help me.[​IMG]

    Looks almost like it should be an Easter egger. But man what a beautiful bird, I wish I had one like that.[​IMG]

    I agree with mix/mutt. Its not an EE because of the single comb and the stature.

    Thanks for all the great answers. Her eggs are brownish and have specks on them. Here is a photo of one of her eggs. Do you think she could be part Buff Orpington and part Blue Andalusian? Tomorrow I will post a photo of her legs. They are gray on top and white on bottom. Thank you also for the nice comments about her looks. She is a beautiful bird, but hogs the food.

    White on bottom reminds me of Australorp. Where'd you get her? I am going to go crazy since I don't know that much and say

    Australorp
    Orpington
    Blue Andalusian
    and maran?
