    I picked up this Ameraucana. It may be an 'Easter Egger', but I'm not too concerned about the nuances in breeding. What I am interested in is the name of this coloring. I've done some admittedly cursory Googling, but haven't seen it. Figured I'd asked the experts. What do you call this color?

    You are correct that it is an EE. Congrats! However, because EEs do not have registered colors it's hard to put a name to each one. That's what makes EEs so special! I love finding out what each color turns out to be :)
