    about 3 months 2 weeks old, bought from feed store as Ameracana. Usually stays by itself. Saw couple of chickens politely grooming its chin/face last night. Chases and pecks others. Can't pet like other chicken breeds. Legs thicker than the other "matching" Ameracan which is slightly smaller with more slender legs. Is is an Ameracana? Pullet or cockerel? Beautiful bird, in my book, inexperienced as that is.

    She is a pullet. I bet she will lay green eggs too.

    What clue tells you it is an EE?

    Quote:She came from a feed store. True Ameraucanas just don't appear in feed stores.

    Easter Eggers are great birds, though! [​IMG]

    Quote:True Ameraucanas only come from breeders. They're accepted only in Black, White, Blue, Splash, Buff and Wheaten and they breed true to those colors. Since your girl (who is beautiful, by the way) isn't one of those colors, she's an EE. I was disappointed, too, when I found out the "Ameraucanas" I bought at the feedstore were EEs, but I still love them!

    She's beautiful! I have four "ees" that were "mislabeled" by a farm store. No worries, what you have is a gorgeous girl who will be an asset to your flock. [​IMG]

    My Ladyhawk looks just like your photo. She is a quiet girl, very shy...the others pick on her...she just came up missing some feathers on her back. She is 10 weeks old...has a grey beard. My other two EE's are solid white...also sweethearts, Sweet Cheeks loves to be held and talks to me with very low cheeps (no Bak's yet) and Opal is very quiet...the SLW's and BR's pick on her.
