    So what's the difference between a ee and amerucana? Still new to all this.

    She just laid a green egg

    Good morning. An EE is a mixed breed. It will not breed true, meaning you can't breed 2 EE's and have guaranteed traits. EE eggs can be blueish, greenish, or brown. An Ameraucana is a pure breed, has light blue legs, and will always lay light blue eggs. That's just a basic difference, there are more exact references but I'm not sure where the link is. If you search google, you may find it. Hope this helps a little :)
