Is she a Ameracauna or an EE??
Generally speaking, if you got her at a feed store she's most likely an EE even if they called her an Ameracauna.
What are these three? I got them at a feed store, but it's also more than that. I was told the were Americaunas, but...
If they are EE could you explain the difference to me.
Every chick in this thread is an easter egger
Ameraucanas are a purebred chicken with a SOP and come in 8 recognised colours only.
EE's are a green/blue/brown/white egg layers, typically with green legs, although they can present with any colour legs.
Feedstores sell Americanas (note the incorrect spelling on purpose) so they can get away with not selling purebred Ameraucanas to the newbie chicken owners.
Thanks for the answer. What, exactly is an EE?
I could google it, but google brings me to this website.
This should help:
Is this accurate?
