    And yes I know hatchery chicks are usually EEs, which is fine. Just want the colored eggs, and now i'm confused as to what I have. This one was sold to me as an Ameraucana at the same place I got the welsummer - they get their chicks from Privett.

    here's some photos:

    here's another one, the ameraucana is the chick in the back:

    I'd say that it could be an EE.

    If they got it from Privett it's an EE. I have 4 EEs directly from Welp and 3 lay green eggs and 1 lays brown.... however I made my own EE crossing an EE roo and black leghorn hen and the pullet from that cross, she's all black, lays the prettiest sky blue egg as frequent as a leghorn!!!

    That looks like the EE I got from Welp. Mine aren't laying yet since they're only 4 weeks old but I'm happy to hear about the green eggs. That would be cool!

    In the 2nd pic it looks like the one in front has green legs and the one in back has yellow. I would say the one with the green legs is your EE.

    Got to say EE there are no Ameraucana colors that look like that as chicks.There isn't a hatchery that sells true Ameraucana's but your cutie looks like a normal EE chick and if you want colored eggs they are a great choice.
