    Here is Bubby who is 10 weeks old. I think s/he is Ameraucana X Wellsummer, but was wondering on a sex. The picture of her [​IMG] head doesn't show it well - but there is some faint orange/pink color to her comb. It is still really flat though.

    Thanks for looking!

    What color was her mother or father? Wondering where that blue was coming from since I got a blue Amercuana hen and a white EE which I am planning on breeding them to a Wellie roo in the fall and spring.

    Ok - got her egg off ebay. There was a pen that had a silver ameraucana with red/brown hens and some wellsummers. There was also a pen with a red/brown ameraucana roo with blue, blue wheaten, and some other color ameraucana hens.

    I was thinking that she came from the first pen because her neck feathers look so much like a wellsummer. It's just a guess though.

    Here are the pics that were on e-bay of her potential parents:
