    I bought this "ameraucana" from a local farm. I am pretty sure she is an easter egger and I am hoping that she is a she. She (Ginger) is 5.5 weeks old. I got her at 5 days old. [​IMG]

    Too much comb development, too early. Plus the coloring is patchy.

    Agree, looks like red bleeding in at the shoulders.
