Can't tell the breed. Is she a hybrid? May be Ameraucana or Mix? Please help

    Yes, she has a crest which makes her different from Andalusian, may be?

    She loves to climb trees, if that means anything...

    if she has a small crest than she is not a pure andalusian, but probably a mix of one.

    Appears to be a mix. She might have some Ameraucana or Andalusian in her, but definitely isn't pure.

    Thanks for the help. She is a tricky and very skittish though. I got her three months ago, she is more than two years old, not a single egg yet

    She also might be a mix with Sumatra. I have a Sumatra/EE mix that looks similar in the head and the way she holds herself.

    There is a blue Sumatra that looks something similar to your bird (head especially)...they are really good flyers and like to roost in trees as they are jungle fowl from Sumatra.

    Most reports I've read state they are seasonal layers.

    Hard to say what she may be as I agree she is a mix. No doubt with some game bird of something in her.
