    Ok so we have been having this discussion on a chicken that showed up at my place. (here is the thread if you wanna check it out https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/833462/chicken-just-showed-up-now-big-chickens-story-a-story-of-a-found-chicken-lol) I know its a hen. Not sure of the age but the supposed previous owner said she was a "laying hen. He called her an "Easter Egger" and I know she is not an Araucana because the one thing I know about them I was told long ago and its is..."If it has a butt its a mutt" lol but other than that I don't know the differences. Any ideas?? Thoughts?? Comments?

    she does look like an EE to me and I'd say that she's from the Buff Orpington line of parentage. I three EE one looks like a Silver Wyandotte, one a Welsummer and the other a blue Orpington

    LOL I looked up Ameraucana, Americauna, Araucana, Easter Egger, and now I am so totally confused....
    I Know Araucana are the rumpless. And Easter Egger is a mix of one of those breeds with another of them or can be some totally different chicken but after that im lost lol

    It is a lot eaiser if you ask someone to explain it to you rether than look it up. Americanuna is just a mispelling of ameraucana. Hatcheries often label their easter eggers as this calming that they are a purebred.Now ameraucana is a breed you can learn a lot at this website www.ameraucana.org
