    Hope these pics are good enough. Is she a splash Ameraucana or a super blue egg layer from MPC? Or something else entirely?

    I would guess Ameraucana, due to the muffed neck.

    Agreed. The slate legs also point to that.

    Awesome! I wondered! So if I bred her to my blue Ameraucana rooster what will the chicks be?

    She's a beauty, does look like a splash Ameraucana. a splashXblue will result in 1/2 splash and 1/2 blue chicks. If you had a black ameraucana, and bred him to her, then the chicks would be 100% blue [​IMG].

    Yes she is, love her she's so adventurous too! Thanks for the great info I do love the blue but actually seeing how great she looks I would be happy with more splashes [​IMG]

    This is a blue Ameraucana rooster right?
