    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I've had this chick for a little less than 2 weeks, and now that she's getting her feathers a bit I wondered if it would be possible to tell her color and breed, as I have heard some places sell EEs and label them as Ameraucana.

    Also her legs are a lot darker than they appear due to the flash of the camera, kind of a dark grey

    It's an easter egger. The only variety of pure Ameraucana that would have chicks with the chipmunk pattern are the silver, and they have blue legs. Green legs are seen in easter eggers.

    Actually, only the silver have the chipmunk pattern, not wheaten, but both should have blue legs. Green legs=easter egger.

    Did you mean "not" an Ameraucana? ;)

    Also, even the Silvers don't look like that as chicks. Yes, they're a chipmunk pattern, but not like that.
