    I just got these today. What do you think they are? They are from a small, backyard breeder and claim them to be "Americana" as they advertised....spelled wrong, I know. I just assumed they were EE, but they kind of resemble the real deal. What are your thoughts? If they are EE's, do you have any thoughts on what mix they might be? Thank you for your input!

    I really don't believe EE's are necessarily a mix of anything. They're just easter eggers. Most have been easter eggers for generations and generations, just like any other breed...

    I don't know if it is an ameraucana, but I've seen a lot of EE's that look like that.

    It's NOT an Ameraucana.

    It's an EE.

    Ameraucanas come in Blue, Blue Wheaten, Wheaten, Black and White, There are also some (Splash and Silver), but I don't think they are recognized by APA.
