    Hello. I have 12 week old chick and am curious to know their colors. Are these two silver ameraucanas or splashes? The first is a Roo I believe. I know the second is a pullet. I have other red brown mixtures and one other silver. These two have much more white and black markings on them though. Opinions please.

    Judging by the willow green legs and colors I've never seen before in a true Ameraucana, I'm thinking you've got a couple lovely Easter Eggers! [​IMG] The first looks to be a pullet, and the bottom a cockerel.

    I was having the same question my self this morning. I read the Amercaucana reviews about how they are loving and sweet birds. We thought we were buying 4 Ameraucana chicks back in March, but they are all aggressive. Turns out they are actually Easter Eggers. Two are white like yours and two are brown and look like hawks. All green legged. Looking forward to the beautiful eggs. Actually glad the feed store lied to us and sold us these:)
