    I'm new in the chicken world, so please bear with me with this somewhat stupid question? I'm with great confidence, you will know the right answer. This pullet I purchased as a day old Ameracuana and has really gone through several color changes. But I'm wondering if she is an EE? So, with all you kind experts out there, can you give me a hand? And if she is Ameracuana, is she considered the color silver? She is now 6 months old and has not produced an egg yet. I'll appreciate your replies!

    She is the most beautiful Easter Egger I'v seen. From my experience they start laying a little later, but are very dependable layers.

    I would say ameracuana because of the face. She definitely looks silver!

    What color are the legs?

    IF they are yellow or yellow / green then she is absolutely an easter egger.

    My EE's legs look the same so yours is an EE. Also Ameraucanas are rare.

    Wowza! Thank you everyone for posting a reply! In the morn, I'll check her leg/foot color and let ya know. Now, I'm more than curious.:) I named this girl Alley just because she was a little "alley" as a youngster. Another reason though, I raised a Buff Orpington together, same age, I call them Kate and Alley. [​IMG]

    I couldn't agree more. Wow she is a beautiful chicken. I'd take her over a "pure" bred ameraucana.
