    I'd buy marans mix. It looks like a wheaten, so with that coloring you have a pullet for sure there. A male would have a dark chest.

    mine has yellow legs, so no to Araucana...some said Sussex...soooo tame, can pet it like a cat now! I think the poster has a Araucana or at least an EE, dark slated legs.

    I don't think EE I have birds with dark legs that are not EE's

    To the op I would say Marans Wheaton mix.
