    That's not a sex-link chick. Several breeds have that distinctive eye-stripe and pattern but is most likely an easter-egger.

    If it is a sexlink it is most likely a female, the males are almost always lighter. Did you buy it from a hatchery or did you 'make' it with your own birds? We did a welsummer roo on silver phoenix hens and the females look like that.

    Quote:Surely they're selling mislabeled Araucanas and Ameraucanas? Correct? Those are really their EEs.

    Might not lay blue eggs, though, especially being an EE. Could be green, pinky-tan or brown. Hope you do get blue eggs, though!

    It could also be a welsummer seems it looks to have yellow legs. Some EE can also have yellow legs. Does it have face tufts?
