    Quote:Chul is a 8 week old Ameraucana hen and will lay eggs in November-December. This is the chick with the bad wing (got in a fight with my Rhode Island Red...) She can fly now [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Based on her feathering, Chul is an "Easter Egger" and not an Ameraucana. I have an EE pullet that looks just like her.

    Quote:Beautiful hen, what color is this referred to? Is there anyone that breed these types of hens but with larger beards?

    She's a Wheaten Ameraucana hen and her beard looks pretty full to me. [​IMG]

    Wheaten is the variety and yes Wheaten and Blue Wheaten are favored by quite a few Ameraucan fans. As far as the beard and muffs all breeders are working on improving their birds. [​IMG]
