    I just got 2 new chicks & would like opinions on breed. If these pics aren't good enough to tell, I'll try to get better.

    This one is Blue. I was told she is about 7 mo. old & is a Blue Wyandotte.

    This one is Hershey. She is also about 7 mo. old. I was told she is an Ameraucana.

    Blue Wyandotte and Easter egger (often mis-labeled as Ameraucana).

    Why does the second one look like a cockerel to me?

    I was told they were both laying but they haven't laid in the week I've had them. I was also told Hershey was laying blue eggs. Any chance she could be Ameraucana?

    Nope that isn't a recognized color and she is clean faced, and they are both girls, the EE has a female coloring.

    You have a Blue Wyandotte and an Easter Egger.

    Even if Hershey was laying blue eggs, she's still an Easter Egger, as she doesn't fit a recognized Ameraucana color variety and lacks correct Ameraucana traits and type.

    Ok thanks guys for the help. I guess there is a chance she lays blue eggs. I thought there was a Brown Red Ameraucana color. Is that wrong?
