    Looks like a EE to me but I don't have experience with chickens. Is she hatchery stock?

    It's hard to tell without knowing her breeding. But it's very possible she is pureblooded Ameraucana. You could try hatching a couple of her chicks with a verified white Ameraucana roo, and if nothing unusual pops up from the breeding, then she's pureblooded. An EE would hatch out all sorts of random color nonsense in it's offspring, even if it looked like a pureblood.

    If she has slate legs the she could be a pure Ameraucana. Is she laying yet? If so what color eggs?
