    Not sure if it's a Maxine or a Max but it's definitely not an Ameraucana. He or she doesn't look like an EE either.

    Americana = EE
    Ameraucana = Ameraucana
    And it’s definitely a Max :)

    Americana = fake name used to trick people wanting an actual breed into buying an EE

    I guess if that’s the way you’d like to think of it as. :)

    3011841E-F0EF-4755-BB2B-86A1AD0962D0.jpeg I was told she was an Americana when I got her? However I was also told she was a hen I’m going to love him all the same. Do you know what breed she might be?

    I’m thinking it’s a mixed breed.
