Mystery Solved

Meet Betty. This is the chicken that we believe gave us the green tinted egg yesterday. She is actually a cross between an Araucana and game hen. From what I understand we will actually get both green and brown eggs from her.

We think that this chicken might have some Araucana in her also because of the tufts on the sides of her head. But I don't think she will have the same type of comb and her head doesn't seem to be as flattened out. Needless to say we are really enjoying the chickens and can't wait each day to see what they might gift us with.

Definite Ameraucana Hen Ms. Betty, She has the pea comb. She is a beauty. I love this breed and still raise them. The best year around layers and gentle to boot.
