    Yeah, you're probably right, but they'd actually be Easter Eggers. Americana's have to be purebred and only come in certain colors and are very rare.

    Looks like an Easter Egger to me, it's got the chipmunk stripe.

    Easter eggers are mixed breeds, so they all look different - sometimes pretty drastically! Their feathers change so much between this age and maturity that there's no good way to know.

    Brown leghorn wouldn't have the fluffy face beard & muffs that the easter eggers have. This one for sure has it.

    I'm pretty sure that is a EE, I've had some with feathering just like that! What hatchery did they come from?
