    I thought so too, but I'm so new to chickens I couldn't be sure

    Yep, EE. Ameraucanas have to stick to their breed standard, and none of these have standardized type or color. But EE are lovely birds, as well!

    I like them either way. I was told they were Ameruacanas and I didn't know enough to dispute him. I'd just rather know the truth. I also thought I was buying Australorps from another person but he told me that they looked like Jersey Giants to him. I'll post pics of them and see what y'all think

    What color are the foot pads on the birds in question - the austrolorp/giant birds? The second picture of the black bird(s) at the bottom is a bit blurry so I can't tell if it's blur or comb type I am seeing, what type of comb does the bird have?
