    but she is laying a greenish type egg with speckles, see top right:

    so she must be an easter egger then? She's a really pretty bird anyways.

    Must be an easter egger somewhere in her background. She is a beauty though and I know many people who would love to have a bird that lays those eggs.

    My Pet Chicken that explains it, they order from other hatcheries so she is a definite EE, very nice too.

    they have overall been very good in my experience, and the chicks i got from them are remarkably nicer chickens that my friends that bought from mc murray and ideal. I mean, really you can tell they are better. My campine and polish have really nice erect tails, my friend's polish have terrible tails, crooked toes and ... they are not very smart.... They have also been excellent on sexing - only one mistake in 35 birds, many of which are bantam. But on this one has been disappointing because she's not what i was expecting to get though she is a fabulous.

    Looks like someone made a mistake then, she looks like an Ameraucana, but the egg color just isn't right. I would let them know, maybe they can make it "right." Can't hurt to try.

    they can lay green colored eggs but there appears to be some color leakage on her though. desired egg color is robin blue
