    I got her from our uncle at his farm (we traded my roo for her, since I can't have roosters) He said a couple of breeds, but wasn't sure which one. He doesn't usually get this kind. She is young, around 12 weeks or so.

    These pics are from August, I posted new pics further down

    She is a GORGEOUS Easter Egger. You can tell by her puffy cheeks! Here is my EE's puffy cheeks.

    Quote:Actually that is not true, Ameracaunas are an actual recognized breed and have only certain colors, EE's are a mutt chicken that will lay a colored egg

    It actually looks more like Blue Wheaton if it was an actual ameracauna. The female wheaton would have black on the tail.

    That's what we thought she was. Just wanted an opinion that knew more that I did about....lol

    Her name is Khaleesi (Game of Thrones fans will know where the name comes from....) Anyways, she is our Road Run, she is super fast. She is also the only one of my pullets that I can get to sit on my shoulder and not freak out.

    I will go take an updated pic, this one is from early August.
