    I was told this was a white Ameraucana pullet from the person I bought it from. Is this true, or is it a EE? She is 8 weeks old and has the slate legs and puffy cheeks. Anything else to look for? Thanks in advance!

    I have one just like that and a cockerel to match! Don't know if they are true ameraucanas or not though. [​IMG]

    Not a true Ameraucana.
    Your bird has Green legs. True White Ameraucana will have Slate legs with the bottom of there feet being White....

    True Ameraucana or not she's a beautiful bird. I have a wheaton 'Ameraucana' chick that may turn out to be an EE but she's so young I can't tell for sure yet. I'll love her either way of course. [​IMG]
