    Looks like she might be an Easter Egger.

    We rescued her, so we have no idea. Could she be an Ameraucana.

    She isn't one of the accepted color varieties for Ameraucana, and she doesn't have muffs (fluffy cheeks) or a beard.

    We have an Ameraucana. She resembled her, so we were guessing . Thanks for your help. I looked up Easter eggers online and she does look like that is what she could be.

    Most birds sold as Ameraucana are not actually Ameraucana, but Easter Eggers.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I actually answered you already on your What Breed or Gender is This? post and as I stated there, given her pea comb and greenish legs, you have an Easter Egger pullet. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    I agree. She looks to be an Easter Egger.
