The one you are holding is a brown Leghorn.

Well she looks right for her breed! Has she laid yet? I'd think she would lay white eggs like other leghorns, but perhaps Danish are different. (I did a quick google search and apparently they should lay white!)

As for the one who you're not sure if she's Ameraucana, many hatcheries sell their Easter Eggers under the name Americauna or they straight out try to say they're "Ameraucana/Easter Egger". But Easter Eggers are nice too smile.png

Current pets - I have 2 boy kitties, a snowshoe and a brown tabby!

 

Future pets - Adopt 1 or 2 rescue greyhounds, adopt a bonded pair of house bunnies, get a nice "little" flock of chickens (around 12-16, all different breeds!) and some serama chickens as pets! And cats, of course! :P

X 2 - you can also use your state thread in the 'Where Am I/Where Are You"  section to find other poultry keepers (and breeders) near you - even if no one in the thread has the birds you are looking for it is a great way to start networking and someone there might be able to put you in touch with the person you need to get the birds you are looking for.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?
