    I got her from some inexperienced people who had them free ranging in the suburbs. I am guessing the neighbors played a part in getting rid of them. Anyhow, she was the only one left and they thought she was a cochin and about 4 months old.
    greenish/yellow legs, feathered
    real dark eyes and face
    blue color with just a puff for a tail (like a cochin)
    She doesn't lay eggs yet and it very shy, really no comb or waddles to speak of
    and her ear lobes look like my leghorns does.

    Looks like a blue (or maybe splash) Cochin to me. [​IMG]

    I didn't think they had green legs, cool. We just named her Delilah.

    It looks like a Cochin/EE mix to me. That face screams Easter Egger.

    Cochin X EE was my guess even before reading the comments, so my vote is definitely towards that. She is gorgeous!

    Not to sound Rude but to all that said EE, Could you explain why you said EE?

    Just so that you know. The color of the legs are Blue and the under side of the feet is Yellow so where the blue is lighter the leg color turns the a Green/ish color (Yellow and Blue make Green)

    Now to the OP is your hens tail all the way grown in and does she have a Single Comb or a Pea Comb?

    If her tail is still growing in and or she has a Single Comb I would say that she is a Hatchery type Blue Langshang...
