    If I remember correctly. Easter Eggers are a mix between iether Araucana or Ameraucana roo, over another breed of hen. I might have that backwards, but I think "please correct me if I'm wrong." that is how Easter eggers are created. And yes your hen does look to be an Easter egger. very pretty.

    This is my lone Easter Egger, and my favorite hen "Stubs."

    what i heard was that they are made when aracauna or ameracaunas breed with other aracauna or ameracaunas without the same variety. thats what i heard.
