    This is our first foray into chickens. I have heard that Ameraucanas are rare and are usually EE. These were sold to us as Ameraucanas but I wouldn't be sad if they are EE. I think they are gorgeous. They are all about 6 wks.
    Can you tell from this pic, Ameraucana or EE?

    9 times out of 10, regardless of what they're sold as, they're going to be Easter Eggers. Ameraucanas are purebred EE, but they're very rare to find. It's also REALLY easy to call an EE an Ameraucana because there's very little oversight. Either way, they're one of my favorite breeds! So congratulations [​IMG]

    I am super happy with them and may get more from the same breeder. I got them straight run along with a RIR who appears to be a roo. If I hatch any of their eggs, what would they be like?
