    Hi. I recently bought 7 chicks from a local breeder. I got 4 ameraucanas, one EE, one lavender orpington, and one white polish bantam. Out of the ameraucanas, I got two blue, one splash, and one that she said was a wheaten. And at first I was happy I had that color, but then I looked online at what color the chicks should be and she was colored way differently. She almost looks like my golden laced wyandottes did as chicks...I guess I'm just confused. I will add pictures in a little bit. The chick in question is a 10 day old female ameraucana chick. Her name is Butterfly. I know that her color will be much different when she is mature, but I just want to know if I really have a wheaten or not.

    Send pictures to the breeder, she should be able to help to identify the color of your chick.

    It's an Easter Egger. That chick is not one of the recognized varieties for Ameraucana.
