    Ordered it from a hatchery? If so then it should be a pullet, looks like a pullet to me. Most Ameraucanas from hatcheries are actually EEs from what I have read. Very pretty bird.

    For clarity's sake (because the breed standards vary), your location is Edinburg in what country? When you say you "ordered" the bird - was that from a hatchery or a private breeder? Here in the US, there are only a couple of hatcheries that breed/sell true Ameraucana - and the leg color of your bird is outside the US SOP for the breed - so knowing what standard your bird would have been bred to and whether it was from a US hatchery (if so, which one) will help.

    I ordered a Blue Ameraucana from Meyer Hatchery in the US. They also sell EE's for a fraction of the cost. I know it is not what I ordered, but would like to know what it is.
    Thank you!
