I am adopting a new hen into our flock. She arrives Tuesday, but I was sent these pics today. My guess is she is a Buff Bantam Americana. But I am thrown off because of her white legs. Can she be a Sussex?
Thoughts?

Got it.

EE because she doesn't fit the Americana breed type. I should have thought about that.

Thanks!

You're welcome. True Ameraucanas have slate blue legs. Most Easter Eggers have greenish legs, but not always. If your hen lays colored eggs (blue, green, etc.) then she's an Easter Egger. If her eggs turn out to be brown, then she's just a mixed breed.
