    I have a very pretty girl and I was wondering if anyone could tell me the breed.

    She has very puffy cheeks! The pictures dont do the cheeks justice.

    And they don't come in this color.

    Agree it's likely an EE, but something is making me thing possibly an Olive Egger project. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but something's nagging my brain that direction. Kind of a 6 of one/half dozen of another thing, but either way it will be interesting to see what color egg she lays.

    Oh, and
