    Looks like an Americana or Easter Egger. Have they laid any eggs yet?

    Easter egger. Call them by the correct name from the start than no one gets confused. She looks like she has a month to go.

    Those definitely look like easter eggers- you may be seeing blue and green eggs soon, though they sometimes lay brown as well. :)

    I agree, Easter Eggers and Ameraucanas are always getting confused for each other. :)
