    So, I ordered 5 "ameraucanas" from Ideal. Four of them, are like the chipmunk striped color..but then I have one that is white. She's starting to get a little color on her head and she has a dark spot near her tail. I got some pics, not the greatest since she was not super cooperative. Do they come in this color? I have no clue and Im curious!

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Yes, they do come in that color, although I couldn't tell you whether that's what you've got there or not.

    EEs come in every color / pattern imaginable, so it sure could be one....

    She'll probably be a goldish blonde on the front half, fading to white on her tail. That's a fairly common ee color so it's a good guess.

    have fun with your chicks! Part of the fun of easter eggers is waiting to see how they will turn out once grown!

    My sister ordered 4 "ameraucanas" from Ideal last year and all 4 are now stark white.

    She started out whiter then the buff orphingtons. My daughter swore she was one of them! LOL Do they all have the little cheek tufts from an early age? My others seem to have them, but she doesnt really.

    Here are two of the others:

    and boy is the one in the middle sort of bossy! Was funny watching them outside yesterday lol Its also fun seeing how much they have changed in the time they have been here!

    Since posting this 5 days ago, she is getting more blonde colored on her head/neck but is now sporting some white/black feathers in her wings and above her tail...which I figured she would have a few, since she's had a dark spot above her tail since we got her.

    I have a white Americana (EE?). She is
    named Mary, however, I'm wondering if
    she might be a Martin! At 9 weeks old, I'm
    sure I'll find out soon. Which ever.. A beautiful
    bird!
