    I was told this was an Ameracauna but after seeing photos do you think it is an EE? And a hen I hope?

    It looks just like my Ameracauna peep. Did you check the vent? That will tell you if it's a girl or a boy.

    I am embarrassed to say that I have no idea what I would be looking for. All my chicks look the same down there so I am hoping for all hens as we cannot have roosters.

    Looks like my easter eggers (sold as "Ameraucanas" by TSC, but you can't get real Ameraucanas from feed stores and hatcheries). You can't vent sex them at this age - that only works for like the first day, and you have to be a real expert. Looks like a pullet so far, but it's really too young to tell.

    Its an Easter Egger. It looks like the ones I initially got. I was told they were Ameraucanas, they were all EE!

    That is what I thought. An EE. That is perfectly fine as long as she is healthy and lays eggs.
