    Here is a picture of my 2 "Americaunas" I was hoping for green/blue eggs. The lighter one lays tiny pink/white eggs. The other is 6 months old and still doesn't lay or crow. By the coloring, I thought "roo" but it acts like a hen. No sparring with the other roo I have....

    I can't locate a full-body shot tonight. I'll take one tomorrrow.

    Are these really Americaunas?

    Those look just like the three babies I got in August, also labeled Americaunas, but more likely Easter Eggers. Mine aren't old enough for laying yet, but I ended up with two brownish/tan hens and what appears to be a whitish roo?? "He" has the same coloring as yours. ..I am still hopeful he's a she but we changed her name from Gracie to Dexter :-D they are supposed to lay eggs that are shades of green, so I will be a bit bummed if they lay brown, I wanted a mix of colors to add to the brown layers I already have!

    Both pullets are easter eggers. Since easter eggers are a mix, they can lay any color of egg.

    They are both pullets, but they are Easter Eggers, not Ameraucanas. Easter Eggers are basically mixed breed chickens that lay colored eggs. Most lay blueish green eggs, but occasionally, they lay pink or even plain brown.
