    Is this hen a BLR, or BLR Ameraucana? Can I expect blue eggs

    She would be an easter egger, as ameraucanas don't come in a blue laced red. So you might end up with blue eggs, might get some other color.

    Pretty EE pullet. If she's got a nice pea comb, you have a good chance of blue or green eggs.

    I wonder what breeds she came from.

    EEs are mutts right?

    I had a nicely laced blue laced red EE years ago. She was a cross of a BLRW male over an EE hen. Too bad a hawk got her before she produced her first egg.

    One of the parents was an Ameraucana. The other parent may have been a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte.
