    I got her from a guy that didn't know what she is. She still has not laid an egg for me and she was supposedly hatched in February. I think She looks like an Ameracuana but not sure...she has grey feet. What do you guys think? What breed would you think? Should I be worried if she's not laying? I've had her a month. [​IMG]

    She is a pretty EE (easter egger). I wouldn't worry too much about her not laying yet. My silkies regularly take longer than 8 months to begin.

    She's an Easter Egger. Ameraucanas only come in eight color varieties. If they don't fit one of those color patterns, they are Easter Eggers. Your bird does have the slate grey legs of an Ameraucana, though, but the color makes her an Easter Egger.

    Easter Eggers are generally slower to mature and start laying eggs than a lot of other breeds. Judging by her comb, I would expect eggs in a month or so. :)
