  2. Might be an Easter Egger (what hatcheries/ feed stores sometimes sell as Ameraucanas). Easter Eggers often lay green eggs.

    I thought Easter Eggees had pink legs? Dang it, I wanted my blue eggs. At least I have my cream legbar.

    Easter Eggers have greenish gray legs usually and they'll lay light green or blue eggs.

    I don’t think any birds have pink legs? I may be mistaken. EEs typically have green or slate colored legs. And they can sometimes lay blue eggs. I have one that lays XL blue eggs and one that lays more large or medium olive colored eggs. So it can vary. They can lay any color eggs and be just about any color whereas true ameracaunas only lay blue eggs and only come in certain colors. Also they are only sold in the correct colors and at a higher price (usually between $10 to $15 or $20) so they would never be sold without a color attached or for $3 or $4 at a feed store. They would be sold as wheaten ameracauna, black ameracauna, etc. if you weren’t told a color then she is most likely an Easter Egger. You seem already somewhat familiar with the breed standard since you say she looks nothing like it but here is the Ameracauna standard again.

    When I say pink, I dodon mean bright pink, it's more of a tan with a slight pink hue.

    Ohh I see. I think some breeds do have white legs and some yellow and they usually go clear when they are laying. But EEs have green or slate legs.
