    I have a beautiful Ameraucana that was purchased at a farm supply store. As a chick she looked like a little fluffly owlet, and she has grown into a beautiful bird. Her body is dove gray and her head is off-white, and she has a beard. Is this just a "mutt" or is there a name for this coloring?

    Quote:If you got it from some were other than a breeder it would be a EE (Easter Egger) and not a Ameraucana. As for the color it would be hard to say as most if not all EE's are a cross and have no set standard..

    This is Liberty... Appropriately named as she is red, white, and blue
