    I realize this probably shouldn't be a hard ID, but can you tell me what breed this is, please?

    Yes, if she lays Blue/Green eggs she is an Easter Egger!

    Easter Eggers can be ANY color (if thats why you thought she wasnt).

    I thought easter eggers always had muffs and feathered feet?

    Nope--muffs and or beards are common, but not necessary. Feathered feet is not a common ee trait, but since they are a mix-breed, just about anything is possible--with the exception of they pretty much need the pea comb gene to lay blue or green eggs.

    She looks like a mix- maybe a New Hampshire (or Rhode Island) Red and a Buff Bahama...?? What color eggs does she lay?

    Looks like an EE cross Rhode Island Red, very pretty bird and how lucky she lays the pretty blue eggs!
