    Hi I have been trying to identify the breed/gender of one of 2 chicks supposed to be Ameraucana but this one is totally different than the other one (who I believe is an EE). So I think this could be an Ameraucana?

    I’m also not sure if she is a pullet/cockeral. Is there anyone that could help me with this?

    Looks like a pullet but too young to be certain.
    I’m not sure on the breed. I know little to nothing about Easter Eggers/ Olive Eggers. :)

    How old is it? Looks like a cockerel to me, but age will confirm. I'm thinking it's an EE, since pure Amerucanas are very difficult to find, also they have pea combs, and your chick has a single comb. Very pretty feathering coming in.

    How old, so we can guess gender more accurately? :)

    Leaning towards beautiful little EE. It's definitely not a true Ameraucana.

    Not an Ameraucana per the feather pattern coming in.

    Too early to tell male or female. What is the age?

    EE and OE could both be mixes of anything with a blue egg gene. No way to tell which one you may have without knowing where they came from and what there cross is. I can't make out straight or pea comb. But I feel like I'm seeing straight??

    Cute chick. :love

    I suppose that since hatcheries usually go for specific crosses to create Olive Eggers, it would be a good time to ask whether (s)he is hatched out of a backyard flock, or came from a hatchery. :)

    Thank you. She is 10weeks old today. I got her from a local breeder he owns a poultry supply store in my area. I originally had gotten 3 Ameraucana.

    Pic 1– The one one the far right I lost unfortunately (i named her Cloepatra; she was like a black and silver/white) the lavender/silver one is obviously the light colored chick and the last is the tan on (top left)
    Black/white “Ameraucana” Cleopatra and lavender/silver one in question (her name is violet) as chicks. 74A1AF94-F38E-4B68-8D19-219054173FFD.jpeg

    Tan (Cookie is her name)

    They're stunning, but I'm not seeing any true Ameraucanas in the bunch. :love All are pretty Easter Eggers.

    Does the seller offer Olive Eggers, then? :)

    Thank you! Just to clarify the last two pics with the 3 others pictured are just to show the one lavender chick (Violet) the others in the picture aren’t any of the ones that I’m thinking are Ameraucana or EE/OE* The red one is an ISA Brown, The white in front is a Leghorn but the black one is another one I’m having trouble identifying (breed) if anyone has any ideas .

    But no he wasn’t selling any Olive Eggers, he was selling EEs which is why I was thinking that maybe they got mixed up? Just because she looked/looks so different from day one I assumed the tan was an EE and she was an Ameraucana. She does have the ear tuffs but hard to see. I picked her because she looked nothing like any of the other chicks there and she’s amazed me everyday, she looked like a little baby barn owl when she was a chick all white/silver/lavender idk what color I call it, than started to get a darker color almost like a slate grey coming in on her head, than all the sudden she had this creamy tan color coming in on her chest. She’s just very interesting to me idk why lol but thank you ! ** if anyone has any idea what breed the black chick in the picture above is please let me know!!
