Quote:Your bird is an easter egger also. This color is a prominant one that I have seen, but to my knowledge there is no name for it.
I ordered them from Ideal as "Ameraucana" and I don't think Ideal even sells EEs. And yeah, as OCchickens asked, what the heck is the difference between ameraucanas and EE's? They both have beards and muffs and lay colored eggs, so, how on earth can you tell the difference? I used to (and I'm sure many other people also) believe that EE is just another name for Ameraucana. That's what it says on Ideal Poultry, but I've learned otherwise from BYC.
And I've got more questions for pips&peeps:
I've seen some non-bearded EE's, and other strangely colored ones...are EE's just mutts that lay colored eggs?
How many varieties do Ameraucanas and EE's come in?
Please tell me all about EE's!
And about ameraucanas-
I know they are in the "micellaneous" class, but where did they originate?
