    Bought this beautiful chicken on Wednesday that I am fairly confident is a pullet, I was told it is an olive egger but looking at posts in here she does not have a pea comb but a very very small single comb - her legs are very very green - what breed do you think it is?

    I would guess they have used a welsummer with a blue or green egg layer to create an olive egger. No reason to assume it will not lay olive eggs just because it doesn't have a pea comb.

    The green legs tell you that it is not a pure welsummer.
