    I have a beautiful Americauna. She is about 10 weeks old. She is brown with grey. I looked at the Americauna Breeder website but couldn't find her coloring. She came from a breeder and should be identifiable. What does that sound like? (I am unable to post a photo).

    Thank you!

    If she's not a recognized color, she's probably not a "real" Ameraucana. You probably have an easter egger hen. Check the ee bragger's thread and see if you see her color there.

    What color are her legs? Let me know if the breeder is from the Breeders List at the ABC.

    Thanks,

    She is from Belt Hatchery in Fresno, CA. Her legs are blue/grey. What do you think?

    Thank you I really appreciate your response! I am new to this and believed the name brand! She is beautiful, but I am not going to breed. I appreciate your help. At least I knew enough to be suspicious! They should call a Easter Egger a Easter Egger!

    It's true, all hatchery birds are EE's they even misspell Ameraucana with an "I". I have a couple in my laying flock and they are sweet birds. They lay well too.
