    Is this a Red-Brown?? How old would you say she is. I was told she should be almost five weeks but she seems awfully big.

    I have one of those but this one doesn't look the same and this girl was sold to me as an Ameraucana. I hope that's what I got....my kids are lookin forward to blue eggs. [​IMG]

    Looks like my Easter Eggers and you're right, looks closer to 6 weeks (at least).

    what kind of comb does it have, the pic is a little blurry. If it is a pea comb then it is an easter egger. Ameraucana don't come in that color. EE's are fun to see what they will look like...

    it also looks clean faced, does it have a muff/beard?

    Quote:If it is an EE it's fine with me, just been curious. But yes it appears to be getting a little muff. She has these finer feathers filling in around her neck.

    What is a pea comb? Sorry, first chickens. [​IMG]
