    Weird name. Is that the only name for her==just Easter Egger?


    Thank you so much for helping me. I will be posting another questionable chicken also.

    x 4 Easter Egger.

    A lot of hatcheries & feed stores call them Araucanas or Ameraucanas, but they're really just Easter Eggers. They're wonderful birds, though. EEs are our favorites out of our standard-sized hens. Btw, she's very pretty.

    She may have been sold to you as an Americana or an Aurucana but if you bought her from a hatchery, then she is an EE. EEs carry the blue/green gene, but they are from mixed parentage and they won't breed true, unlike Ameraucanas, and don't match the standard colors. I have a few EEs and they are great birds. Yours is beautiful! [​IMG]

    Purebred amaracauna. An easter egger is a bird that lays green eggs but isn't purebred. an amaracauna is a green egg laying bird with dark legs and a beard.

    Americana refreshed my memory. I was told it was Americana. I bought three of them from a local Feed and Seed Farm supply.
    A beard? Would that be the bushy feathers off the side of their cheeks?
