Americana?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 


Is this hen an Americana? She has the beard and ear muffs, just started laying yesterday. She lays a cream colored egg. She was a rescue hen, quarantined by my vet friend for a month and then over a few weeks time I acclimated her to my girls and roo. I'm a Barred Rock guy, that's all I know but want to be sure this one is an Americana... She is quite a bit smaller than my barred rocks.

Ameraucana hens lay blue eggs. They also have slate legs and feet. She is probably an EE. They are a cross of a blue egg layer and another breed.

Your bird is not an Ameraucana.  They need to fit in a specific color variety, have muffs and a beard, slate legs, and lay blue eggs. She could be an Easter Egger, however.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

She's probably an Easter Egger, but not an Ameraucana.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
