    Both the colors patterns and the dark legs (true Ameraucanas have blue legs) make it an Easter Egger. You can read the standard for the true Ameraucana at http://www.ameraucana.org/history.html. There are some advantages to EEs. They typically outlay true Americaunas, and they lay eggs in colors other than just blue. Our EEs are my granddaughter's favorite chickens. She loves the colored eggs that they lay.

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    X2 I think you have an EE rather than a true bred ameracana. True ameracanas are so hard to find.

    You have lovely and lovable girl there! Enjoy her and welcome!
