This Little Chicken

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

This little chicken is the only one hatched from a dozen "Ameraucana" eggs.  I put "Ameraucana" in quotes, because I don't want to say for sure that is what she is as there is always the possibility she might be an easter egger.   If she is an Ameraucana I'm not positive what type of Ameraucana she might be.  I also cannot remember what the hen and rooster were that she came from.  I've been reading the Amerauacana standard of perfection and the big, long thread on here, and am still unsure as to what exactly she might be when she grows up.

 

She's has the beard, the red breast is coming along, and her legs are slate (tops and bottoms).  I'm including a few pictures and hope someone can help.  Thanks in advance!!  :frow

She's an Easter Egger. She's too dark to be wheaten, and she's not quite right for buff. When you buy Ameraucana eggs from an actual breeder that knows the breed standard, they will always tell you what color variety you will be getting. If no color is specified, they are Easter Eggers.

Definitely an Easter Egger pullet rather than a true Ameraucana. If you're not familiar with the difference, there is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html explaining the difference between true Ameraucanas, true Araucanas, and Easter Eggers.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Easter Egger. She's very cute!

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
