Ameraucana or EE??? *picture heavy*

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought 4 chicks from the pet store where i buy all of my chicks from. He said they were ameraucana but i have no experience with this breed. Are these ameraucana or EE or to early to tell? Two are smaller than the other 2 but im not sure if they were all hatched together or not? Ive had them for 1 week tomorrow.

Chick 1-




Chick 2-




Chick 3-





Chick 4-




Chicks 3 and 4 are bigger and seem older than chicks 1 and 2 but like I said Im not sure when they all hatched.

"4 chicks from the pet store" 

They're Easter Eggers, you can only find true ameraucana from purebred Breeders <3

A proud member of 4h and a strong bearer of the Pacific Northwest and its Cold, not to mention a chicken mommy of 3 Cochins, 1 Sicilian Buttercup, 2 Bantam EE, 1 RIR/EE Mix, 1 Mille Fleur Booted Bantam, and 2 bantam OEGB's, a Black Bearded Silkie and a double laced silver Plymouth Bantam!

I thought you could only get araucana from a breeder? He does get his chicks from breeders thats why i go there. I got my polish there recently as well.

Ok thank you. Hoping to get some blue eggs. I have an all white easter egger now and she lays a blue green egg. Well she did. She took FOREVER to lay. Even my silkie was laying before her. She layed for a few weeks and then stopped. Why would that happen? She is totally healthy and looks great. Most of my flock is starting to molt but i havent noticed her molting yet?

   Are you sure she stopped?  Where was she laying her eggs?  In a nest box?  She could have a secret nest if she has access to the outside.  Or someone could be eating her eggs. Or she could be taking a break.   Just keep looking and see what you find.

She was laying in the nesting box. I let them free range most days but not everyday. Today they haven't. Maybe I'll look around the coop and see if she has a nest somewhere but i doubt it sad.png
