    i got this little girl a few days ago. anyone's guess on if i'll get blue/green eggs from her?
    does she look like maybe a bantam too? i was told she is three months old. i included a picture of her with my full size SLW. this little girl is much much smaller then my welsummer that was hatched 4-19. currently she is on the bottom on the pecking order, but she getting more acclimated. i am really looking for a wheaten Ameraucana, but so far, no luck :-(
    thanks!

    I have her twin. MIne is 14 weeks old. Her mom is a barnvelder color, and of bantam x size, very short legs. This baby is quite small, I would guess yours would have bantam in her as well. I am thinking I will be getting a pale brown, or maybe if I'm lucky, pale green egg. Her mom lays a pale brown. Do you know who the daddy is??

    wow! that is practically her twin!
    Her dad was a full size big "ameraucana" (EE) rooster from Welp Hatchery. the mom was purchased from someone locally as an EE. the mom laid pale green eggs. so i figure with dad's blue gene and mom's light green gene, i should get some colour...right?
    any ideas on age or egg colour for this one? and pullet right?
    i am not too sure about the age of this one. i was told three months but she is quite small. ive never had bantams so i don't know how their size is. the girl i got her from said she fed scratch for the first few months, i feed chick starter, not scratch. so hopfully, she'll grow more with more nutrients.
