I believe she's an olive-egger, which is a selective cross for olive-colored eggs. My guess is that she is Welsummer x Legbar, based on her appearance.

Generally, Legbars don't get too big of crests and a cross's crest should be smaller still, so it's likely your other birds will leave her alone. Polish with their massive crests often have plucking issues, but a large factor in that is that their crests are so big they can't see and the other birds take advantage of that. Your little one shouldn't have that problem. :)

As usual, agreed.

Oh I would be thrilled if she is an OE! I have and had EE but if I get darker green eggs I will do a happy dance! 😀 Thank you!
