    I bought 4 chicks from the Chickenstock in Rason WV.
    2 are suppose to be Ameraucana but I only believe the one is... the other I believe is an EE.
    can someone either confirm my worse fears of give me great news that I indeed have 2 Ameraucana...
    TIA!!

    I think Ameraucanas are supposed to have green legs so the second chick might be an EE but I might be wrong. [​IMG] Even if it is an EE you should be happy they make wonderful chickens! [​IMG]

    Ameraucanas do not have green legs, unless there is some sort of boo boo, or project bird.

    You have easter eggers; and they are pretty cute!

    Only the top one has green legs though. the 2nd chick has bright yellow legs..​

    The only difference between ameraucanas and EEs is that ameraucanas are pure and EEs are "mutts"

    I agree. I have an EE and she's our favorite! Unless you're showing them I don't think this should be a big deal. [​IMG]

    Quote:Well... you won't be able to show these at APA sanctioned events. You can, but they'll be DQ'd for being mutts. Why not get in touch with Pips&Peeps, or CityGirlintheCountry, or other BYC breeders of quality Ameraucanas?
