OK we have a brown and black chicken that we thought would give brown eggs well to our surprise it started laying green eggs and it doesn't look like a Easter egg Chicken that we could tell is there other types that do this or is some kind of freak lol.

A pic might help,
but Ameraucana EE gene is dominant, so a mutt could lay green, but black and brown could be such.
I have Ameraucana purebreds and our RIR spent a surprise few days with our girls while we were out. The result was a RIR-ish (redbrown and black) looking hen laying olive eggs.

Yup, a mixed-ameraucana for sure. (almost the same as ours!) not a black or white, but.... consider her a mutt with the ameraucana gene. she has nice form too.
look familiar?
