    This is sue...she lays green eggs
    The owner I got her from told me she was EE or Ameruacana. But all the other pictures Ive seen of those breeds look different. Can anyone confirm?

    Are you absolutely sure she lays green eggs? Everything, from her comb to her ears point away from that.

    My guess is an EE and Brown Leghorn mix. Leghorn because of the coloring and pattern near her tail and neck, the big comb, and the white earlobes. However the green egg gene would definitely suggest EE.

    Well shes does look a lot like a leghorn only more red than brown. However leghorns have white eggs. Am I right? Thats crazy how much she looks like that breed from the comb, waddles, head shape and the body shape are exactly the same. Just the color looks off.
