    We were recently given two 1 1/2 yr. old hens. We know that the one is a barred rock but not sure about the other. A friend thought that she might be an Americauna. She lays light brown eggs, not the blue-green though. Is she just a mixed up chick?? Thanks to anyone who might shed some light on this matter.

    Looks like an EE (Easter Egger). They lay colored eggs. She is very beautiful!

    She is an EE very pretty too. Some will lay brown eggs instead of green/blue eggs.

    Great thanks to all who answered. I was hoping for blue eggs but I guess brown eggs are better than no eggs!![​IMG] She is pretty but likes to pick on our poor banty girls [​IMG]

    I have an EE who lays light brown eggs and some that lay green. She sure looks like one and she's very pretty.
