    Definitely a pullet, and she does look like she's got BCM in her. If so, then you could have an olive egger! [​IMG]

    Congrats!

    Olive egger would be great!!! I think I'm going to keep calling her Thing, she's just so odd looking. [​IMG] I really love her beetle green/blue shine on her feathers.

    Easter Egger hen all the way. I have 3 EE hens and they a great egg layers. I was very impressed so I got 5 more chickies from MYP. 2 of my EEs lay olive eggs, one lays blue.
