    Any idea what the predominant breed is here? We got her as a fertilized eggs from a friend who has a lot of different breeds. I'm trying to figure out who is laying which eggs in our coup, and I think she might be laying the blue ones. Is she an Americauna?

    Just did a little more research and seems she might just be an Easter Egger, which is a mix of several breeds? Am I right?

    If she's laying blue/green eggs, then she's an Easter Egger. Otherwise, she's just a pretty mix.

    She is definitely not a Ameraucana (which would be bearded). My guess is that she is probably a EE mix.

    She looks to have a pea comb, which would lend itself to her being your colored egg layer. By default, any bird that lays colored eggs and doesn't meet a specific breed standard can be termed an Easter egger.

    I think you can in those 4H programs.

    I don't know about 4H shows (I know you can show Black sex links at some 4H shows, and they are not a breed)
    But since they are not a breed, and they follow no standard, I doubt they are showable.
