    That is definitely female coloring for the Easter Egger, the buff is a female too [​IMG].

    Most people (and lots of hatcheries) call them Ameraucanas but easter eggers are not a pure breed, they lay green, blue or pinkish eggs and come in lots of different colors while pure Ameraucanas only lay blue eggs I think, and there are some other things that I forget about them.
