Easter Egg Chicken?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

OK we have a brown and black chicken that we thought would give brown eggs well to our surprise it started laying green eggs and it doesn't look like a Easter egg Chicken that we could tell is there other types that do this or is some kind of freak lol.

A pic might help,
but Ameraucana EE gene is dominant, so a mutt could lay green, but black and brown could be such.

I have Ameraucana purebreds and our RIR spent a surprise few days with our girls while we were out.  The result was a RIR-ish (redbrown and black) looking hen laying olive eggs.

Yup, a mixed-ameraucana for sure.  (almost the same as ours!) not a black or white, but.... consider her a mutt with the ameraucana gene.  she has nice form too.
look familiar?

welcome-byc.gif to all of you!

 

Arucanas are rumpless .... well they are supposed to be anyway.  She is an Easter Egger and a very common color.  Pretty girl!

She is not an Araucana or an Ameraucana at all. She is a hatchery type Easter Egger hen.
