    I have 2 of these birds. They were supposed to be americaunas... obviously not. They lay an olive egg and I'm 90% sure they are bantams. If anyone has any thoughts

    Probably olive eggers, which fall under the larger term Easter Eggers or EE.

    They look like what most people would just call Easter Eggers, mixes bred to lay colored eggs, most of the commercial hatcheries sell them in bantam.

    That's kinda what I thought. I got them before I realized how hard americaunas are to find. Thanks for the input.

    They are probably Easter Eggers.
