    And what is it with people who sell EE's under false claims that steal other's EE images? Every time I see an ad for Easter Eggers "also known as Ameraucanas" - They're usually using a collection of photos I KNOW aren't theirs.


    But, to the point, I'm glad to hear of that. [​IMG]

    How is it that everyone else has broody Ameraucanas? Not ONE SINGLE Am hen has ever gone broody for me. (This is the part where I knock on wood and give a nod of thanks!) [​IMG]

    What color is this, and are they really Americana's or just an EE?

    I don't know if the photo's are going to load or not...

    Such fun!

    Thanks, I was thinking they were EE, and thats ok - I love your list though, it has been very informative.

    You need some Lavs. They go broody before a year of age and are pretty mellow about it. It figures that lav hen that I have that lays the blue-est egg spends most of her life broody. Bad influence from my Cochins. [​IMG]

    Quote:They're Easter Eggers.

    The top boy is a golden duckwing with blue.

    The bottom girl is a duckwing / black breasted red with possible columbian.

    Technically no recognized color, just, a mix of colors. [​IMG]
