Ameraucana?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am unsure if this is an Ameraucana or not. Her head is reddish with a brown speckled body.  Was told that she is an Easter Egger  Any help appreciated.  I do know that I have a blue Andulusian and a Polish, although I am not positive of her color yet.  She appears to be buff, or a lace bluff. 

 

This is my first time with chickens.  Not raising show quality just a collection of rare breeds for fun

I ordered full size chicks from MPC.  Do you think its possible they made a mistake?  I was very specific with my order and the order was filled with the following 15 rare breed assorted.  I called after ordering to ensure that these were full sized chickens and bantams . As I am new to this it may be that I am uneducated in chickens.  I thought bantams and pullets were smaller sized than full sized chickens. Please feel free to explain the difference

Bantams are smaller versions of large breed chickens. Roughly 1/3 to 1/2 the size. Although there are what are considered "true bantams" of which there is no large breed counterpart. Such as sebrights, nankins, and japs etc. Pullets are female chickens less that 1 year old in any breed. And are usually slightly smaller than the males.

Large fowl chickens vary widely in size. On the larger side would be Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Wyandottes, Orpingtons, Sussex, Cochins and so on. Then there are the lightweight Mediterranean breeds. Those would be Leghorns, Hamburgs, Campines, Buttercups, Polish etc. Those breeds are built much differently and are noticeably smaller than the large types. They are meant to be high egg producers but on a minimum of feed.

 

Yours is not a bantam. It is a Campine.
