    Hope this works, first time trying to incorporate a picture in a post here. The first picture is at 4 days old and the last two pics are at 12 days old.

    I found a few pictures that look very similar, but I haven't seen enough yet to know how exact they need to look to be a match - as none of the ones that looked similar looked exactly like this one - well you know what I mean - not looking for a clone, but...

    It can't be a mille fleur because it doesn't have feathered feet

    It's likely not Ameracauna unless you got them from a very reputable breeder. Pure Ameracauna chicks are usually solid color and the ones that are chipmunk striped are silver. Ameracauna only come in a very select few colors and have slate legs. You have what looks like an Easter Egger. :) green legs and a common Easter egger color.
