    .... it's not because of the comb, no puffy cheeks, etc...Can Ameraucauna's or "EE's" really, have this comb? I think where ever she got it, it was mixed up and is another breed, what do you think????? Am I wrong???

    It looks like a chimera, and possibly an EE/Ameracuana mix with a singe comb.

    There is a thread here about chimeras... you need to find it and post your pic there.

    That chick is awesome! I'd definitely venture to bet you have a chimera there!

    EE's are a mixed breed so it very well could have some EE in it. Either way it's gorgeous, please post updated pics so we can see what it feathers out like. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks like a mixed breed chick. I highly doubt its a chimera.
