    I am trying to figure out if the following birds are Ameraucana or an EE.
    All opinions are welcome I suspect that since they came from Performance poultry that they may both be EE.


    White Pullet named Storm.

    And this cockerel is Gambit. He does look after the girls really well when they free range.

    The White one looks to have Green legs so that would be a EE
    The cockerel is a EE..

    Quote:The first one is not an ameraucana. Her body shape isnt right, and her legs are green. Unless she is dirty, there seems to be discoloration of the white in some of the feathers near the saddle. If she is an ameraucana, she is very poorly bred. But I doubt she is.

    The roo is an EE.


    Is performance poultry a hatchery? if so, theres no argument - they are both EEs.

    Storm looks like an Ameracauna to me. I see slate legs- maybe it's just the lighting.

    They are both ee's.

    I cannot tell what color legs the white one has, but she does have a yellow beak which is an indicator of yellow skin. Ameraucanas do not have yellow skin or yellow beaks.
