    I think it's within the realm of possibilities. She could also be an Easter Egger like mine:

    Your girl looks a little "leggy", you sure it's a she?

    Ameraucana chickens only come in these colors: Black, Blue, Blue Wheaten, Brown Red, Buff, Silver, Wheaten & White

    If they aren't one of those colors it means they don't meet the Standard of Perfection (SOP) and are considered an Easter Egger, or EE for short. [​IMG] Still very pretty though. I have six EEs myself. [​IMG]

    ETA: I think it's a roo also. [​IMG]

    I think your she is a he. That's a very typical EE rooster color pattern and I think I see pointy saddle feathers starting to come in. [​IMG]
