    A friend gave me some layers last fall, 4 red, 4 black, 3 easter eggers (I think!) and this black which is different than the rest.
    She has white earlobes, not much comb and lays a very light colored egg. What do you think? [​IMG]

    I think I posted in the wrong place! Sorry!
    Here's my introduction:

    Hi! I'm new here on BYC, but I think it's just great!
    I've had chickens for a couple of years now, right now I have 11 layers. I'm not quite sure what breeds they are. I have 3 red, 4 black, 3 ameracauna, and one black unidentified (hence the post above!) I'm getting 6 silver laced wyandotte chicks and 15 heavy breed cockerel chicks next week. This is my first experience raising chickens from chicks so it should be fun.

    Looks a bit like a Black Australorp but it's just a guess.

    It looks like an easter egger to me... or some other kind of beautiful mutt. Very pretty!
