    where are you (country)? I would guess an ee since she's not one of the blue egg laying breeds that I know of.

    Yeah, I don't know of any odd breed that might be over there and lay a blue egg, so I'm sticking to an EE

    Are you sure EE? I thought they had pea combs? [​IMG] Of course, I don't know what other chickens lay blue eggs other than EE's and Ameraucanas. Hmmm...

    Since EEs are mutts they sometimes end up with a modified pea comb (not quite a single, not quite a pea).

    ee is a trem giving to any chicken that does not fit a breed, but lays colored eggs. Legbars lay blue eggs, but have single combs (so not all blue egg breeds have pea combs) Most ees have a modified pea comb but not all will.
