    She is 3months old and I bought her from a feed store. They stated that they were Ameraucana's.
    She is really a pretty chicken. Any other thoughts?

    Welcome to BYC!

    She has a fluffy chin and rose comb. I can't see her legs but bet they're green. She's probably an Easter Egger.

    Hatcheries have falsely sold EE's as Ameraucanas for a long time. They're just a mixed breed - really sweet.

    thanks, she does have green legs.
    She was very cute as a chick. I have a few more new chicks from
    a different feed store and they are not as cute as she was.
    She also has attitude!
