    Maybe, just maybe an Easter Egger!?! I can't really see her face, but if it looks like she has puffy cheeks/feathery... then she is defiantly an EE.

    looks like it might be a Black Sexlink. There are a lot of color combos that you can use to make them.

    She was sold to me with Black Copper Marans. She thought it was a Marans. I don't think it fits any of there patterns. I will get a better pic today she has reddened up and is beautiful to look at! Lays white eggs which also puzzles me.

    Are the eggs a very lightly tinted tan? I have 2 Black Sex Link pullets that looks almost identical to her (the other 20 are the typical bsl pattern). They can lay brown eggs that are so light they're almost white. She doesn't have white earlobes so she really shouldn't be laying white eggs.

    edit: Here's a picture of one of my non-typical colored BSLs.

    Oh and just looking at the first picture you posted, the hen in front is a Black Sex Link also.

    The others are Black Copper Marans, they lay the very dark eggs. The Wheat colored hens egg today look darker than white. I will go with the sex link idea then. As good as any I've had! Thanks guys!
