help with breed identification possibly a wheaten Ameraucana?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

my chicks are around 7 weeks old and were part of a mypetchicken rare assorted breed batch, I know all the others were easter eggers. She (at least I hope she is a she) was a pale yellow chick when I first got her any guesses on what she is? Thanks!

With those greenish legs you have an Easter Egger as true Ameraucanas have slate blue legs. Sorry. :o(

Green legs means yellow skin. That means Easter Egger.

Yep, another Easter egger. She'll probably mature to look a lot like this....

I was leaning towards easter egger but hoping she was a wheaten :/ oh well I love my other easter eggers :) thanks for the replies. mostly what is throwing me from not being an ee is that she was a solid yellow chick, all my other ee have looked like little chipmunks when they were little

You're welcome. Because EEs are hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown egg layers there can be a great deal of variation in their appearance depending on which breeds were used in the crosses and the particular genetics involved.

I agree.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
