    She's beautiful! She is the black one below. She will lay blue eggs. She has a beautiful blue hue and is very healthy. She is almost 20 weeks old. Selling her and another pullet because I have too many.

    Just a minor correction, if it is the black one then she is a black Ameraucana. Blue is an incomplete dominant - meaning the gene will show with just one copy. Since she is black she does not carry the blue gene. That will not change egg color. She will lay blue eggs. But for breeding purposes she is black.
