    Ameracauna's (I probably butchered the spelling) are certain breed colors. I believe anything that falls out of that, is Easter Egger. EEs are really mixes.
    I haven't seen an EE like yours before... but it could be. Wait for someone else to answer. She's really pretty! [​IMG]

    We have 3 and they are beautiful. They are flyers. Look like some kind of wild bird.

    Are you sure that's an Easter Egger? Seems like another breed to me, but I cant quite remember the name of the one I'm thinking of. I have Ameraucanas and even Easter Eggers usually have beards.

    Im not sure what it is at all! They are so pretty and softer than the other chickens. I know theyre nothing rare or exotic. Theyre from the ranch supply. Any guesses would be appreciated.

    She looks like an EE that I got from Ideal.

    Mine has no beard or muffs, and has red all around her eyes. Looks very similar. Is she laying yet? EE's or Ameraucanas lay a greenish blue egg.

    The Ameraucanas do all have muffs and beards like was mentioned. The Easter Eggers are Ameraucana crosses, mixes, so they usually do too, but since they aren't a pure breed, it's probably possible for them to not have them too, especially if they're a 2nd generation outcross.

    Your chicken is colored just like one of my Easter Eggers, just doesn't have her muffs and beard.

    Like the other poster said, it's the blue or blue-green eggs that give them that name anyway, so if you get an egg like that, I'd think that it would be an EE, no matter what the bloodline or the coloration.

    My son was given a little game pullet that looks a lot like your bird.
