    I have completed my "incubation project" and ended up with 10 new baby chicks.

    Part of that egg grouping included 12 Americauna eggs (ordered off E-bay). Of those 12, 3 hatched. The first two look like what I would think an Americauna should look like - dark brown with various markings, darker legs.

    The third egg that hatched from that group was yellow! It's got the darker legs, but the feathers are yellow, and it has the cutest big puffy cheeks (I would post a photo, but my dial up connection and photobucket don't seem to get along).

    Would I be safe to assume that the guy I got the eggs from must have accidentally allowed another breed in for a brief moment and I have a mutt of some sort, or is there such thing as a yellow Americauna???

    when I received my chicks I thought they had miss counted I had 1 too many yellow chicks and 1 less ees however the 1 yellow is feathering out white I think this may be a white ee.

    Yes, we had two yellow chicks when we ordered our EE's and they have been laying since mid July and the yellow chicks grew up to be full white EE's and lay light blue eggs.

    Easter Eggers come in all sorts of colors, while Ameraucanas come in a few standard colors, but both come in white. Yellow chicks often grow into white chickens.
