    Generally speaking, if you got her at a feed store she's most likely an EE even if they called her an Ameracauna.

    What are these three? I got them at a feed store, but it's also more than that. I was told the were Americaunas, but...
    If they are EE could you explain the difference to me. [​IMG]

    ^^^ Agree.

    Ameraucanas are a purebred chicken with a SOP and come in 8 recognised colours only.

    EE's are a green/blue/brown/white egg layers, typically with green legs, although they can present with any colour legs.

    Feedstores sell Americanas (note the incorrect spelling on purpose) so they can get away with not selling purebred Ameraucanas to the newbie chicken owners.

    Thanks for the answer. What, exactly is an EE?

    I could google it, but google brings me to this website. [​IMG]

    Is this accurate?

    ~~Not A recognized breed of chicken by the A.P.A
    Typical Easter Eggers are from the same stock as Ameraucana's but do not conform to A.P.A standards Pea Comb
    Can be broody, make good mothers. Hen Weight: Aprox 5.5 Pounds
    Resistant to cold
    Good Egg layers of Large Green, Blue or Tinted (pink) Eggs
    Easter Eggers are generally docile, friendly and make great pets.
