    I have two girls who I got from the same person. I'm wondering what breed they are. They have ear tufts, like an Aracauna, and they are supposed to lay blue eggs, but they have a tail, like an Ameracauna. Also, Cora,the one in the picture, has a more upright posture, and is smaller than the others. Maybe some sort of game chicken mixed in? I don't know, any opinions would be appreciated! If you need more pictures, I can get them![​IMG]

    She's a pretty Easter Egger. Easter Eggers are birds with Ameraucana or Araucana ancestry, but don't fit either breed. Most "Ameraucanas" from hatcheries, feed stores, etc., will be Easter Eggers. Even if they're not purebred, Easter Eggers usually lay colored eggs.
