Here are our four chickie babies. A Cuckoo Maran, a Rhode Island Red, a Golden Sex Link, and an Amaracauna. We got them on Valentine's Day, love birds! I have a sneaking suspicion at least one is a roo :( Would love your thoughts!
Maran is totally a dude, everyone else looks fairly pullet-y
You can't find REAL Amaracaunas at a feedstore, they're all EE's
Real hatchery Ameraucana cost a lot of money, about $20 per chick, and only 3 hatcheries currently have them.
Most hatcheries have Easter Eggers, but call them Ameraucana to get an extra dollar more per chick for them.
It's false marketing, but they get away with it by saying that since there is no recognized breed called Easter Egger, so they have to call them Ameraucana.
One of the biggest lies in the chick industry.
