    We have just gotten our chicks and I am curious about what they will look like when they grow up. Not sketches or paintings. Does anyone have pictures of theirs? Thanks so much! I did find a fantastic page of pictures of Buff Orpingtons on the breeds page. Loved it!

    The picture above is an Easter Egger... although most hatcheries call them Ameraucanas.

    Ameraucanas are bred to standard and only lay a light blue shelled egg. Visit the Ameraucana breeders club site below to learn more:
    http://www.ameraucana.org/

    Easter Eggers are non standardized, so therefore can be any color, may have muffs/beards or not, and generally have olive green legs. They lay eggs in varying shades of blue, green and brown.

    Hiya, JD! Miss seeing you post these days!
    If you have Easter Eggers as opposed to Ameraucanas, they can be all sorts of colors. Here are some pics of my Ameraucanas, blues and blacks, although the black rooster is owned by someone else now. The first is Gypsy, the daughter of the blue hen (close up) and the black roo:

    And this is an BLRW x Ameraucana

    He's splash! He is pretty neat looking, if you could just get rid of that cushion comb now.

    You could creat blr ameraucanas, unfortunately the eggs are going to be green now. [​IMG]
