    I'll bet it's an Easter Egger. I've seen lots of them with wellie-like colors. And then the grey legs.....[​IMG]

    Sorry everyone for just now getting back with you....As for the hen....she could be an ee, I guess I'll just have to wait and see what color egg she lays. I still haven't had any luck with a pic of her. I'll keep trying. Thanks for the help, keep it commin![​IMG]
