    the legs look like they might have scaly mites so that might have an effect on it, also shes looks just like my blue ameraucana...and i got her from a breeder up here so i know thats what it is...

    In addition to what p&p said, the plumage color is off for blue. I think I see buff/red coming through unless it's the pic. Could it be 2 ameraucana color varieties crossed?

    Jody,

    Sometimes sun damage on old feathers will cause them to look that reddish brown color.

    poultrykeeper08,
    Looks like an Ameraucana hen to me. Greenthumb89 is correct you need to treat the legs for scaly leg mites.
    As far as the color blue is very hard to breed to the standard with perfect lacing but the bird looks good enough for breeding. HS
