    I say Easter Egger, basically a mutt breed that lays colored eggs.

    I agree, she looks like she could be an EE, but I could very well be mistaken.

    DT-

    EE's are Ameraucana mixes.

    Aracauna's don't have tails.


    With the leg color being greenish, my thought is an EE hen.

    Quote:yeah, i know.. I get their names confused a lot since their all the same thing (basically). Ameras, are just the US breed of Auras, pretty much... but just because she has a tail doesn't mean she isn't half [​IMG] , could have always got it from the Cross

    Thanks all for the fast replies.
    She was sold to me as an Ameracauna. I was having doubts though because she does not have muffs and as I understand it, they all have muffs. She must be mixed good enough (EE mutt) that that was bred out though.
    I went back to the same place today to look at the different breeds he has and the remaining ones he has left had a sign saying they were Andalusians. If that was the case, I was a little upset because I did not want that breed at this time.

    Actually they aren't basically the same thing at all. My Araucanas look nothing like an Ameraucana or an EE.
