    I was told I was buying araucanas hatching eggs, assured they were pure bred...obviously they are not. This one has crazy feathers, willow colored legs, and dark skin. What do you think she is? I'm assuming an ee of some sort, but what mix causes a crest, and this coloring?

    Yes, it is a Frizzle. I also think it is an Easter Egger, though it could be crossed with a Silkie, that may be why it has a sort of crest.

    Interesting! She's the cutest thing ever. She came from a very blue egg, it will be interesting to see what she lays. Thank you for the guesses!

    Since it doesn't have feathered legs or dark skin, It's probably a Frizzle Polish/Easter Egger cross.

    I think you are right. One has a V comb, and this unscrupulous seller is bragging about her frizzle polish roos. Grrr.
