    I'm going to guess that she might be an EE.

    I know mom was a barred or buff rock or wellsumer.
     
  4. The one in front is an EE, only it doesn't have a beard. I had one that looked just like her. Are you talking about the one between the cream chicken and the brown and blue one?

    She looks exactly like my EE, Ariel. Ariel lays a beautiful green egg. I love the grey in her tail!

    I don't see why folks are sure she is an EE but then I have only had a couple. Her legs are yellow, my EE did not have yellow legs. To me she looks like she could be a wellie mix. I would say you can know for sure when she lays but my EE laid a brown egg. My wellies are hatchery breed and lay a darker than most egg with dark brown flecks. She sure is a pretty little hen.

    Quote:That's a pet peeve of mine. [​IMG] Hatchery EE's have that partridge-like coloring and they're very common, so it's the first thing that jumps to everyone's mind, but there's A LOT of other breeds with the same look. She doesn't look anything like an EE to me - no beard, no greenish legs. The OP stated she was a mix and could have either a BR or Wellie mother.

    She looks like a Wellie mix and if that blue roo next to her is her daddy than that's probably where she gets the blue undertones. She's beautiful! She should lay a nice colored egg.
