    Hi there. I got this pullet this weekend as an amerucana. However due to her colouring I'm thinking ee? She has the beard and Grey/blue legs. . But the brown and Grey colours in her don't seem to match amerucanas.

    I think that's an Easter Egger pullet.

    A very beautiful EE. I have 4 EE and only one has the slate/blackish colored legs. There are only 8 accepted colors for ameraucanas. ameraucana breeders club (ameraucana.org) has the list on their website and a gallery with pictures. I was duped with mine, they were sold to me as ams, but they're not.

    Thanks guys. She was sold to me as an amerucana but I'm not disappointed.
    Her colours remind me of a peregrine Falcon!
