    Hello! Any breed guesses on this little guy (or gal)? I got him/her from a flock swap and was told polish. However, he/she does not look polish to me.

    not polish, as they have a top knot as a chick, big nares (nose holes) and a v shaped comb (yours has a single comb)

    "Americaunas" are what I guess I could call a fake breed. Truthfully, there is no "I" in Ameraucana, the true spelling of "Americauna". The name "Americauna" is what hatcheries and sometimes small breeders give their Easter Eggers.

    Thanks for the replies! I think EEer could be it. No way to really know since they are such a mix. She is very tiny. Close to bantam size.
