    I was told if she lays blue eggs its Ameracauna and green eggs Easter Eggers..Mine lays green and blue? Does this mean she's a mix? Sometimes she'll lay tinted green and sometimes tinted blue. I'm very confused. She's then only Easter Egger/Ameracauna I have other than my banty..Thanks

    There's a lot of misinformation about EEs, Ameracauna, and Araucanas out there, so the confusion is definitely understandable, but the information you were provided just isn't correct.

    My EE (who was sold as an Ameracauna, though I knew she was actually an EE), looks like this:

    That sounds like the colors! The one you can;t see her feet and she's right next to a white chicken! You can only see the white chickens head.
