    We raised this hen from a chick and she just gave us our first blue eggs and 5 1/2 months!! Obviously tufted and bearded and has willow legs...is she a tailed Araucana?

    No, she is an Easter Egger hen. And she has a muff, no tufts. Pretty girl, fairly common color for an Easter Egger.

    She looks just like my Esmerelda. So, mine are EE's and not Ameraucunas?
