    I bought this bird and several others a few weeks ago, the owner said they were Ameraucana's but I'm not convinced so I will just call them EE's. Is this bird considered a Lemon-Blue color?

    It is definitely not a true Ameraucana, and its not the true Lemon Blue color either.

    Its not a real named color, EEs are mutts anyway so its just a mixed color.

    I have a 3 month old hen that looks just like her except she is younger. I was wandering the same thing about mine.[​IMG]

    A Lemon Blue hen would be the same color as a "Blue" hen but she will have a Lemon/ Orange color in the hackles.
    Here is a picture of a Lemon Blue hen in a different breed. The coloring would be the same in any breed..
