    That tail is insane!! I am 99.9% sure its a pullet, just because we had her "twin" as well, who was looking VERY roo-ish before he decided to take a suicidal hope over 2 seperate fences and into the dogs run where he met an untimely end.... poor boy [​IMG] Anyway, he had a large dark red comb, very pronounced...and hers is still teeny tiny and barely even pinkish.
    Anyway, this little girl is a Bantam something....but I cant for the life of me figure out her breed! She has crazy thick "eye liner" coming back from the eyes...I will post some more pictures of her when she was younger, if that will help anyone figure out what she could be as well...The one above was taken today.

    2 weeks old...

    Dont EE's have puffy cheeks? This one does not have puffy cheeks...
    And do EE's come in Bantam size?

    Quote:Ameraucanas come in Bantam size so I would assume that you could get a Bantam carrying the blue egg laying gene which would be an EE...not all EEs have puffy cheeks. [​IMG]

    ETA: It could be something else also, but I just don't know enough about chickens to think of anything else that has green legs and looks chipmunky like that with the eye stripes. [​IMG]

    Do I see pointy hackle feathers though?
    (I'm a newbie, so I'm really asking!)

    Quote:Nope, the feather pattern is just deceiving. I have two EE's of my own.

    Yes, EE's come in bantam size, and not all have beards and muffs.
