    We bought this bird from a local woman along with several other birds of varying breeds. From Australorps to Barred Rock to Leghorns. All kinds. Some are clear EEs but this one I'm not so sure...She's young. Hasn't started to lay yet and the color on her breast and wings is getting darker. You can't see her legs well but they are almost a silver gray color. And a very small pea comb.

    I say EE's due to the lack of beard/muff or just a plain mix breed

    It's a beautiful Easter Egger. At least it's a girl :)

    She is one of my favorite girls. She has such a sweet temperment and she makes these little chirping purring sounds. She let's me pick her up without any argument...I think I love her...Lol. I'm hoping that one of my EE's is an olive egger. I want one real bad...

    I agree with this, she looks to be a mixed breed hen. May have some EE in the background, it's a common ee color, but the clean face and straight comb also mean she could just be a mix.

    If you zoom in, she has a pea comb.

    She doesn't have a straight comb or single comb or whatever its called. She has a pea comb.

    She's definitely an Easter Egger mutt. I had a clean faced EE girl that looked similar to her - only she was blue where your girl is white. She layed a BRIGHT blue egg.

    I agree, she's an Easter Egger. A pure Wheaten Ameraucana would have muffs and a beard, as well as slate colored legs and slightly different coloring. She's a very pretty bird!
