    Its easier to tell the gender/breed when a chicken is all feathered in. Its too young to tell gender-- post some more photos when she/he is feathered in more. However, your bird looks like an Easter Egger, based on the fluff color pattern.

    We need a better photo. From the little part of her that I can see, though, it looks like you have an EE pullet.

    Good rule of thumb is.....if you have to ask, it's an Easter Egger.

    Your first one looks a lot like her
    is it possible that she was sold as an Amereracauna but is an Easter Egger

    Will post better pictures shortly

    It is an EE (could tell with chick pic alone, so I don't see what some say to wait)

    Is there a difference in the Roo comb sizes in the EE and Ameraucanas? With so many people selling EE and ameraucanas, how do you tell what you are getting?
