    Can you help me figure out which type Ameraucana our baby Niblet is? She's so blonde and her contrast feathers are so light grey they're almost blue. I was thinking Silver?

    The photo is not very clear, but she may be Wheaton or blue Wheaton. Here is a link that has photos of the different color varieties so you can compare.

    I know, I'm sorry. It's taken on my Kindle and they obviously don't want to sit still to have their picture taken :wee

    If she came from a hatchery or feed store then she's likely an Easter Egger.

    Updated with better picture! Niblet the wonder-peep! The only thing missing is just how steely blue her lightest feathers are. I think blue wheaten is a good fit for her coloring but I've never had Ameraucanas before:confused:

    She has the wrong color legs for a true Ameraucana. She's an Easter Egger. I have one similar in coloring, and she lays blue eggs. Her "sister" lays light olive.

    Agreed, def. Easter Egger based on leg color.

    Agree she's not an ameraucana she's what would be labeled Easter egger which come in about 117 1/2 patterns so kinda useless trying to match her to one of a handful that true ameraucanas come in.
