    just wondering if this is an ameraucana? I got it from a family friend that could no longer care for it...they didn't know the breed either.. it Is about 5 months old and I got it when It was just 17 days old.. if someone could confirm it is ameraucana or tell me what it is that would be great! (sorry the picture isn't great)

    I thought that what it was to, but when I look at an ameraucana it looks so similar to that also.. could it be a mix?

    thats how ee's are made, they use an ameraucana or an araucana with a different breed to get a non standard blue or green egg layer. You can also use ee's to make more ee's.
