Technically, an Easter Egger IS an AmerIcana, if it's spelled like that. She seems to have the wrong color legs for an Ameraucana; they aren't slate, at least the way the pic looks. Does she have a single comb? If so, definite Easter Egger.

Does it have a V comb, something like this? If so it is definitely an EE, but what a beautiful bird, especially to have been crossed with such a different breed! (Ameraucana's have Pea combs.)

It definitely is not an Araucana, Araucana are clean faced(always), rumpless(preferred), and tufted(also preferred). Mine a quite a bit smaller than my Ameraucana also.
countyroad1330- I have NEVER seen a EE with a V-comb. Most EE are pea combed, which I believe is the correlation of the blue egg gene.

Pretty EE you have there

It looks like a blue ameraucana, but the legs are throwing me off. It may be an easter egger bred up to look like a blue ameraucana or someone bred an easter egger to a blue ameraucana.

Better pictures of the comb and legs would be helpful. The eyes look a little light too, they are supposed to be bay.
