    So this is ed. We have no idea what she is so im thinking she is going to be a buff ameraucana. She is still really small, smaller than the other four month olds, so thats why i thought shi is a bantam. She relly has almost no comb, very laid back and sweet. she is super soft with some strange twity feathers and is starting to get purpleih feet whih i know is common in this ameraucana breed. Is she an ameraucana???

    Not an Ameraucana - she's not the right colour, lacks a beard and muffs and has yellow legs, not slate.

    She looks like some sort of bantam game mix.

    She lacks a single trait of an ameraucana, sorry. I'd also say some type of game mix.

    No, that is not a Buff Ameraucana. She lacks the muffs and beard, slate colored legs, chunkier build, and better color of an Ameraucana. My best guess is that she is some sort of game-bird mix.

    Not a buff ameraucana. It had yeloow legs, very slim build, no beard, and incorrect coloring. As the other said I think some type of game mix

    I'd say a game bantam mix. No green/blue legs, no muff/beard, coloring in wrong, and the comb doesn't really look like a pure pea comb (maybe a pea/rose, or a poorly formed pea comb). Pretty bird!

    If she was an Ameraucana, she would show at least some Ameraucana characteristics at this age.

    She looks almost exactly like someone else's, but that means she is a wheaten or splash
