    We got both of our girl's from a local feed store. We were told that one was an Americauna and the other was a Silver Laced Wyandotte. The Wyandotte has a white head, but otherwise doesn't look like the other full grown chickens I've seen. The "Americauna" was a yellow chick, and a white (not yellow, beige, or brown) chicken. She is a sweetheart and we love her, but it would be nice to know that she is going to give us a colored egg.. eventually.

    EE's can be any color and can lay just about any color egg. There are all white Ameraucanas so it is definitely possible. Just gotta wait for that first egg to arrive before you know what color it will be. [​IMG]

    I have 3 pure white EEs. They all have very green legs. No clue what color egg they lay but I assume they are green or blue since I get about 18 green and blue eggs each day [​IMG]

    I have one pure white EE and another that is almost entirely white that I got from McMurrays this year. Green legs and muffs saved me from thinking they were extra white rocks [​IMG]
    No eggs yet.

    I have two solid white EE's.

    Sweet Cheeks has blue legs and Opal has greenish legs. Sweet Cheeks had a puffy cheeks when she arrived from the hatchery, thus her name. They were yellow chicks that feathered in white.

    Opal lays light blue eggs...Sweet Cheeks is close to laying [​IMG] for a darker blue egg from her!!
