Help with identifying hen and chicks color?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a Araucana that I purchased from Awesome Araucanas.  I am not sure what her color is called.  She is yellow and rumpless with no tufts.  I have crossed her with my Blue Wheaten Ameraucana and she has given me rumpless chicks that look like her.  Recently she gave me another yellow rumpless chick but it's beak and legs are dark.  Any idea what these colors are called.  I am posting pics of hen and roo and one of their regular babies and also my new dark legged one.  The wings are coming in and they are also yellow.  No darkening at all in the wings and tail.  Thanks in advance!

 

P.S. No selling this baby.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.

 

Plus both parents come when called and are highly intelligent.  Neither is aggressive.  Just the best personalities.  This is them begging at my bedroom window for treats.

Just a light buff?  Cause buff was the closest thing I could find.  I thought she seemed a bit light though.

Buff describes a number of shades, just like the color "blue". But yes, a light buff is very accurate description of your adorable fluff!! <3
