    anything that is not a recognized color is considered a EE.even two pure bred am's can produce a EE like if you put a silver to a blue they are still a pure AM just not a recognized color.i have lemon blue's and they are at standard but not a recognized color.so i just have fun with them,they are very beautifully birds.

    If it is a Amaraucana its a poor quality Blue. I have seen this color pattern in hens as discribed as shmutzy. But in a male a little shmutz on the wings is acceptabe ??? Not sure if that helps I may be think of a different breed altogether. Senior moments suck.

    Deffinetely an EE, there is no color like that recognized. Same with the green legs, Ameraucanas have slate blue legs. She's pretty though, EE or Ameraucana.
