    Started out as a standard brown chipmunk Americauna chick. Turned blue grey with adolescent fuzz and now is mostly white, but with a speckled head. Any ideas?

    Easter Egger, not Ameraucana. [​IMG]

    It will grow to have a color similar to what you see, but with more blue/black around the wings, tail, and head. The color tells me it may be a boy though. How old is it?

    She/he is about 8 wks old. Looks like I have nothing but roos in this batch. The Maran in back is definitely a roo.

    I'd give it some time. Pea combed birds can be tricky. I've had an Araucana who convinced me it was a girl until one morning it walked right up behind me, and, "oooh - ooh!!" Boy.

    They are staying together probably until spring when I decide on who stays. If the EE is a roo he might stay to breed my other EE.
