    This little chicken is the only one hatched from a dozen "Ameraucana" eggs. I put "Ameraucana" in quotes, because I don't want to say for sure that is what she is as there is always the possibility she might be an easter egger. If she is an Ameraucana I'm not positive what type of Ameraucana she might be. I also cannot remember what the hen and rooster were that she came from. I've been reading the Amerauacana standard of perfection and the big, long thread on here, and am still unsure as to what exactly she might be when she grows up.

    She's has the beard, the red breast is coming along, and her legs are slate (tops and bottoms). I'm including a few pictures and hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!! [​IMG]

    She's an Easter Egger. She's too dark to be wheaten, and she's not quite right for buff. When you buy Ameraucana eggs from an actual breeder that knows the breed standard, they will always tell you what color variety you will be getting. If no color is specified, they are Easter Eggers.
