    I got this tree chicks as Ameraucanas a week ago, but i wanted to make sure. They all have greenish legs and their combs are still tiny but they look Pea to me.

    EE for sure.

    1. It doesn't have muffs which ameraucanas always have muffs but EE don't have to.
    2. It isn't an actual color pattern as it is more random. (does that make sense?).

    purebred ameraucanas don't have green legs
    there are only 8 accepted colors

    your chicks are beautiful, but unfortunately not ameraucanas. I got duped too and have 4 beautiful (SMALL) EE pullets myself.

    X2 on ViolinPlayer123. Also, the greenish legs are a sure sign of an EE as true Ameraucanas have slate blue legs.
