    I bought this hen from a fellow who had "Americaunas" as well as a variety of Marans: Splash, Blue, French Copper, and Splash. He was breeding to get Olive Eggers. She lays regular brown eggs, maybe slightly darker than my Barred Rock's.

    I gather she's a mutt, but what should I call her? an Ameraucana? Easter Egger?

    A mutt. . . ?

    She has a single comb and does not lay or carry colored egg genes, so really, she's not even technically an Easter Egger.
