    My husband's chicken has become a lovely lady. We want to know what color she's called? The guy who sold her to us told us she's an Americauna. She has orange eyes and pale greenish gray legs. Her hidden earlobes are pinkish with freckles. She has a beard that's usually gray/red/brown. She lays a pale brown egg.

    She is an Easter Egger, and like most EEs, they have not set named color patterns, they just get whatever they get. She is really cute though.

    Easter Eggers are mixed chickens, right? What do you think she's made of? I'd love to have some more. She makes pretty good company, for a pet. And thanks for the complement, we think she's pretty, too. Thanks!

    most EE's are some mix of Americauna's most feed stores sell them as Americauna's but they are EE's because they won't breed true. They are great and can lay blue, blue/green, green, pink or brown eggs. I have 3 that lay pretty blue eggs. I love my EE's

    EEs have Wild type coloring, I'd say Wheaton but not standard.
