    I bought my little girl at a feed store back in May as an Ameraucana- I dismissed her and labeled her an EE early on. I can't help but think that she looks a lot like a Silver Ameraucana hen (minus the chocolate on the tail feathers) See attached and let me know what you think!

    She's so pretty. I think you're right though, she's an EE. Her color is just lovely, kind of a buff color, with some highlights. I wouldn't say silver, but then I may not be getting the true color on this monitor. My monitor makes her egg look to be a pale tan color, so I'm not sure if I'm seeing the color correctly. The comb kind of makes me believe she's not an Ameraucana.

    I would post a pic of her too! She' is just lovely! Thanks for sharing!

    That is what I thought too- but I don't tell her that! She thinks she is an Ameraucana! Thank you- She is very pretty and delicate. Her eggs are almost a slate blue green color. Her legs are also a slate green color. I haven't really seen many other hens like her!

    A EE also has a bear all around her and under her beak.Her combing is fairly high to be a EE.

    She looks like an Easter Egger to me. Pure Ameraucanas have to lay pure blue eggs.

    Agreed. And the fact you say she has slate/green legs is a sure sign of EE
