    Thanks to everybody who helped figure out my roo's breed. It was agreed upon that he was an EE crossed with a Delaware:

    Now I would like to see if someone can tell me the breed of my hen. Sorry that I couldn't take a clearer pic. She was moving a lot and my roo was getting in the way (almost seemed like he did it on purpose!)

    P.S. A little fun fact: her name is Tequila. [​IMG]

    Looks like either a Gamefowl cross or an Easter Egger cross.



    btw - That rooster is not a Delaware cross. [​IMG] Delawares are barred and Columbian, both dominant traits, that bird is neither barred nor columbian colored.

    Quote:I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure that isn't an EE. She has a single comb, looks like she's got white earlobes, and her body nor color match the typey EE. She looks to me like a brown Leghorn cross or a Welsummer cross.

    Sorry OP, but slight thread derail.........I agree with the above, that's not an EE, my guess would be Brown leghorn. Is she laying, and what color are her eggs?

    Okay, OP, I don't think she's pure anything, a mix of...........huh. Is she laying and what color eggs?

    Sorry I didn't know who you were talking to.[​IMG]

    No unfortunately she isn't laying. I'm not really sure of her true age to be honest with you... [​IMG]

    An EE is a cross/mixbreed in itself so there is no such thing as an EE cross. It's just an EE which makes both of your birds...EEs. Breed them together & you may get colored egger babies. Your hen may also lay colored eggs herself as she has the pea comb which is closely linked with colored eggs.
