Amerucaunas? Second opinion wanted :)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So all of these chicks came from an assorted rare-breed chicken package from McMurray hatchery. The first 2 chicks have beards (hard to tell in picture) any guesses?

Chick 1


Chick 2




And last but not least... I don't know what this one is:

The first one looks either like an Easter Egger or ameraucana. The second one looks like a buff Orpington and the last one looks like a barred rock.
I had each of those breeds in my last order and they looked almost identical to yours.

First bird looks like an Easter Egger. 

 

Second bird, I can't see that well. does it have feathered legs or extra toes, and white skin? If so, Faverolles. If not.....

 

Last bird is a barred something. From the rare breed assortment it shouldn't be a Rock, it should be either a Marans or a Dominique. Straight comb and white/pink skin is cuckoo Marans. yellow skin and rose comb is Dominique.

It does have feathers legs! I'll go count the toes smile.png
I'll check the other ones to see if they are in stock at the hatchery. Thank you!

I agree.

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
