    So if she's an Easter-Egger, she's an Ameraucana then? Thank you for your reply!!![​IMG]

    Quote:Nope. If she's an Easter Egger, she's NOT an Ameraucana. Easter Eggers are the chickens that carry the blue-egg gene but that do not conform to the standard of either Auraucana or Ameraucana.

    I don't think she is an easter egger either. I thought that ee's had greenish legs. I don't know what she is but she is beautiful!

    They do not always have green legs, that is just the normal color for them... they can be yellow or slate also.

    I'm gonna say Easter Egger as well.... and SO pretty! Muff and beard, color and chick color, pea comb..... if it's not an EE then it is at least an EE cross.

    Oh, just search for EE Araucana Ameraucana.... you will find many conversations on the topic of the differences [​IMG]

    Here's a link also......

    I'm gonna say half EE and half dark Cornish.

    Her coloring had some qualities similiar to a dark Cornish and her thick yellow legs also make me think Cornish.

    I don't have experience with EEs, but I would have guessed a Partridge or Gold Spangled Wyandotte. Where did you get it?
