    This is my little Josephine. Feed store labeled her an Ameraucana, but they were all sorts of colors with no specific color details. She definitely has the puffy cheeks and a bit of the beard.
    Anyone know what color she'll be?

    Sorry but you have an Easter Egger. Most feed stores sell Easter Eggers under the name Ameraucana. Easter Eggers are mixed breeds so you can never really know what color they will be.

    Cute Easter egger! I just started chickens several weeks ago. I have Easter Eggers and then Blue Ameraucanas from a breeder. I also have several other breeds as well. My easter eggers have various duckwing patterns. Kinda fun because you never know exactly what you are going to get. Since they are a mixed breeed you tend to get various traits from them from what I understand. Here are some of my Easter Eggers. My one that started out chipmunk colored is the lighter patterned fellow[​IMG][/IMG]

    Well ok then! No harm, no "fowl!" Lol
    She's just the sweetest little girl so I really don't care what breed she is.
    Thanks for the clarification!
