Is this thread still going?  I'm eventually going to learn to post pictures; I'd like opinions on my Ameracauna pullet and my 2 white <hopefully> female juvies . . .

I have a pure rumpless auracana roo I would like to breed with my hens. It will be our gist time, and we intend to incubate. I have a black copper Maran, a barred rock, and an amaraucana w/ beard and muffs.. Would I end up with ee?

I'm new on this subject and was curious why if both parents are ameraucanas why they wouldn't breed true if the roo isn't also white? It would be an EE even if both parents are ameraucanas? Thanks smile.png

Its all I the feather color there are standards in what the bird looks like you can know it is true but if it doesn't meet the color expectation they can't go to exhibitions

I have a question, my eggs I ordered are hatching today and tomorrow. I ordered 3 Easter eggers and the eggs are very blue I didn't realize but after reading this I'm thinking they could be ameraucanas?? Could they, or is it to early to tell? Only one hatched so far. The other eggs I ordered were buff orpingtons and black australorps, could the blue eggs still be EEs???
