    Any ideas on the cross?

    These girls were sold to me as brown red Ameraucanas but they obviously aren’t. 2/5 have beards and muffs, one is an obviously lighter colour than the rest. Any ideas? They definitely have lots of Americauna in thrm and her whole flock lays blue eggs but some looked suspiciously green to me as...

    Ameraucana has bald spots on face and is shaking head

    We have nine hens in a fully enclosed coop and run. One of our Ameraucanas has recently gotten bald spots around her face and on her head. She seems to be shaking her head sometimes, too (I'm not sure if she's doing that more than usual or if I'm just paying closer attention). I picked her up...

    Ameraucana (?) Breed question and Pullet or Roo?

    I have two Ameraucanas in my flock (I THINK). The topic still confuses me, because I've learned that just because a chicken has parents that are both Ameraucanas, if they don't meet a certain color requirement, they might not TECHNICALLY be Ameraucanas, but instead be simply classified as an...

    What color would the hens likely lay?

    Hello, all! My Starlight Green Eggers started laying for me on Christmas!! Now, my Ameraucana roo just reached sexual maturity and has begun mounting my SGEs! I do want to keep 4 more hens in my flock and I'd like them to be colorful egg layers, so, my questions are as follows: 1.) Is it too...

    New here!

    Hi all! I currently have 7 chickens in total, Cochin rooster, Rhode Island Red rooster + his mate, and the 4 others I think might be a silkie/EE mix? Or Maran/Silkie mix? Not too sure and would love to know your guesses? Also if you all agree that I think I might have 2 roosters out of the cross...

    What colour morph is this hen?

    What colour morph is this Ameraucana? This precious girl was a hatchery rescue. She suddenly passed away recently and we realized that we never figured out what “colour” she was. Any idea what she’d be called?

    Ermine Ameraucana Questions

    I hope this is the right place for this! I bought 4 “Ermine” chicks from a breeder & have already reached out to her regarding this question but I was confused with the answer. They came from a Dom White Roo & Ermine hen. 3 of the chicks are pure white and 1 is ermine. I was told that the...

    Do I have a rooster!?

    Hello everyone! My husband and I are raising our first flock of backyard chickens. We have Rhode Island reds, barred rocks, and ameraucanas (yes, I know they are actually Easter eggers since we got them from a hatchery). We ordered all pullets but decided we wanted to free range, so we are...

    Ameraucana Breeding Conundrum. Input?

    I would like to breed Ameraucanas (not Easter Eggers, not Americanas), but I have recently read that the offspring resulting from an Ameraucana of one color bred to an Ameraucana of a different color will not be a true Ameraucana, but instead an Easter Egger. Why? How? If that is the case, even...

    'Americana' Fun Gender Guessing

    Recently got some straight run chicks from TS labeled 'Americana.' Though it would be fun to post pictures and guess what they might turn out as. Here are pictures at 3 days old and 4 weeks (sorry they didn't want to stand still for these). I'll update every few weeks. Figured this might help...

    EE/Ameraucana 12 weeks old - I think no roo?

    Okay. So all my “girls” are 12 weeks old now and I think we don’t have a roo. The biggest girl who’s definitely top of the order has been my main concern but at this point, her comb isn’t redder than any of the other ones and they all seem to be rocking similar feather patters. I don’t have...

    What in the world is this? You never know what you're going to get at RK!

    I went to Rural King here in Central KY and picked up some chicks, only to find that they were not what I thought I was getting. Does this sound familiar? I need help identifyng all 4 of these babies. I'm actually somewhat pleased as these look so interesting. These first 2 pics are from the...

    Newly Aggressive Hen

    I have 4 hens in an enclosure that they’ve been in for almost 2 years and out of no where my smallest Ameraucana hen (who is at the lowest pecking order) has just started attacking my brown leg horn hen, holding her down, pecking her head, and drawing blood. It’s been a few days and she hasn’t...

    Ameraucana, EE, Cream Legbar, which one?

    I hatched out 4 eggs. they were from a 1, blue Ameraucana over blue and white Ameraucanas and a cream legbar, and from 2, an Easter Egger pen. am I correct here? brown is a legbar cross, black is an Ameraucana, and the two lighter babes are Easter Eggers? eggs weren't labeled.
