    I bought these two from a feed store labeled as Ameracaunas but their coloring is different from the true Ameracaunas I have seen on websites. They are 6 months old. Does anyone know what breed they might be?

    good rule of thumb---if you have to ask, they're Easter eggers.

    Better rule of thumb--if they're from a feed store, they're Easter eggers.


    If they're pure Ameraucana, they're going to be $$. If you paid under $5 a chick, they're EE.

    If they weren't specified as any particular color, they're EE. Just like no one reallly buys say a Rock. You buy a barred Rock, a white Rock, a buff Rock, etc. Not just a Rock. Same for Ameraucana. You might buy a black, or a blue, or a wheaten, but not just an Ameraucana.
