    So then that's not an Ameraucana? :(
    Was hoping it was since the place that I got it from said so...do u know if the EE still lay the same colored egg as the Americana?

    Easter eggers carry the colored egg gene, but you won't know until they lay for sure. I have two, one lays a pretty green egg, one a light brown. I think that I heard that the pea comb is linked to the colored eggs, that is true with my girls. My pea comb lays the green egg, the straight, smaller comb (not sure what it's called) lays the brown.
     
  5. Oh and EEs lay colored eggs! :)

    My brown egg laying EE has a pea comb. So much for that theory.

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Pretty girl, what poofy cheeks. With EEs of unknown parentage you have to wait and see what they lay, hopefully she will lay you some pretty green-blue eggs.
