Is this an Amercauna?

I think we've got two discussions going over top of each other here.
1) the original question about the light brown chicken (who either is or is not a Calico Princess)
2) the white chicken either is or is not a California White (CW)

By the time everyone posts in quick succession, I have no idea which chick is being discussed in which comment!

My personal take--the white chicken probably is a California White.

I think the light brown chicken is probably some special mix from a hatchery, perhaps a Calico Princess or something similar. She's likely to lay eggs that are some shade of brown, although there's a chance of getting green eggs instead. (Some lines of Olive Eggers could look like that, although the most common ones don't.)

Sorry for the confusion . I’m thinking a mixed breed too. Also, my very first egg EVER, showed up today. See pic.

It happens. No need to apologize.
I was just trying to help sort it back out. I think a few "it can't be" kinds of comments might be from people mistaking which comments go with which bird. (Maybe something like the brown chick cannot be a California White.)

Beautiful!
