Types of chicken beaks - Page 2

post #11 of 12

You were sold Easter Egger eggs. Blue chicks have dark/medium gray down. Splash have light grey down. Wheaten are cream colored. You can not cross different color varieties and still call them Ameraucana. But given how yellow a few of those chicks' legs are I'm guessing the parents weren't true Ameraucana to start with.

Yeah I got screwed. Oh well I guess. I'll love them any ways.
