    This is my hen, Sylvia. Can anyone identify her breed for me? Someone said she looks like an Easter Egger.

    She looks like a white Easter Egger / Ameraucana. Probably EE, I have gotten pure white ones from hatcheries, but do you know where she came from? White is one of the Ameraucana recognized colors. http://www.ameraucana.org/standard.html

    Thanks.
    I don't know where she came from. She just came wandering into my yard so I adopted her.

    Pretty little white Easter Egger. Or possibly a White Ameraucana.

    White EE, not an Ameraucana. See the buff feathers on the breast? Or is that staining?

    What color are her legs?

    Araucanas do not have tail feathers in the USA. Is she laying yet?

    If she lays a blue egg she may be an Ameraucana. If she lays a green egg she is an Easter egger. Either way she sure is pretty.
