    This little girl is just about one of the sweetest pullets I have ever owned. I really want to show her in the fair, the 4-H kind of thing. It's not a big show I just
    want to do it for fun. Is she a splash or an EE? I ask this because I keep seeing PB Ameraucanas that look alot like her. I googled some images of "Splash
    Ameraucanas" and found a few that look fairly similar. She has a little brown on her chest, but I also noticed some brown on some of the images I looked at.
    She is only 8 weeks (2 months) at the moment and she may still be developing in color. What do you guys think?

    Where did you get her from? If you got her from any feed store, or hatchery, she is an EE. Some Ameraucana breeders can probably chime in as well but unless you got her from a specific breeder of Ameraucana's she is an EE.

    She is beautiful regardless!!

    Quote:Thank you! I am not sure if the woman we got her from was a breeder or not. I don't recall her telling us where she got them.

    Quote:I went and took a look at her a few minutes ago and looked at her feet,
    and they look blue-ish for the most part. The bottoms of her feet are
    light yellowish? I think she is just an EE looking at the feet.. Are the feet
    supposed to be fully blue?
