Pure Ameraucana's are clean legged....but there are many crosses (easter eggers) that can be feather footed. The industry has called easter eggers > Ameraucana's for such a long time that it can be really
confusing. Out of the colored egg layers in this country, less than 20% are actual Ameraucanas..less than 5% Auraucanas, and the rest are crosses.
I found the personality, early maturity, hardiness, feather color, and egg color of the Ameraucana so interesting though that I actually cross them on purpose to keep those traits and get other interesting features. My current primary pure breed breeders consist of Ameraucanas, welsummers, & marans. Im not going past F-2's though or it will just be a cluster fu** of genetics. So some of the f-1's and all of the F-2's will be sold as chicks for colored egg layers (easter eggers)
