    Hi all, we got this chick at a local rural King. It was in a bin labeled Ameracaunas but now I'm thinking that's not what it is. I thought maybe an EE but it does not seem to have any of the facial features such as cheeks. Any ideas? It is around 9 weeks old.

    That's an Easter Egger which is a mixed breed of anything crossed with something with blue egg laying genes. You'll typically see them with a pea comb or another small comb, such as a rose or walnut. Yours has a straight comb. It's most common to see them with tufts and beards, he has what's called a "clean face". The blue legs are typical of Easter Eggers.
