    We picked up some pullets today all of which we knew the breeds except one. He told us it was an Ameraucana but I had my doubts. Can anyone clear up which breed this might be?

    We are not sure on the sex either. It is around 8 weeks old. Thanks for your help on this.

    Golden Laced Wyandotte/Easter Egger mix is my best guess too. [​IMG]

    Yep, my thoughts as well. Easter Eggers are commonly duckwing, and crossing laced birds with duckwing works really well if you want to keep the lacing.

    Thanks for the the breed information, we would be happy with that mix now now let's hope it is a hen. Any other thoughts on its gender?

    Well I took "her" to the Urban Farm Store here in Portland to our resident chicken expert and he says all signs are pointing to a girl. No evidence of pointed saddle feathers yet so I will keep my fingers crossed.
