    I named my Ameraucana chick "Egg McMuffin", "Muffin" for short. Is Muffin a boy or girl? Muffin is around 8-9 weeks old. Thank you for your help! :)

    [​IMG] She is an Easter Egger pullet - suppliers and even hatcheries frequently sell Easter Eggers as 'Ameraucanas'.

    This is one of my adult chickens. I was told she was an Ameraucana as well. Is this true?

    It may be the lighting of the picture, but the beak color looks wrong.
