    Hi all

    Thanks

    Sorry - she is wearing her run camo

    She looks like a patchwork quilt - neat. Not any recognized color (perhaps an EE) but fairly certain she's indeed a pullet.

    Thanks - forgot to mention that I believe she (hopefully) is about 8-9 weeks old. I ordered her at 4 weeks as a Ameraucana from McMurray.

    Not an Ameraucana, sorry. Lack of beard and muffs would disqualify her. Probably an Easter Egger. And I agree she is a pullet.

    Thanks. No biggie - an EE is fine with me. I appreciate the reply!

    If she's supposed to be one of their blue Ameraucana, I'd be asking for my money back. She's cute and basically blue and may lay a blue or green egg, but she's not an Ameraucana.

    On the other hand, she is a she, so that's a bonus [​IMG]

    McMurray hatchery does not have any true Ameraucana. They have Easter Eggers.
