My experience is not with bantams but... Ameraucanas are strong layers as long as they have a lot of light, but they stop early in the winter and start late in the spring.

These are both easter eggers. Tip one; they don't list a color. (Example BARRED rocks, WHITE leghorns, BUFF Brahamas, SILVER LACED Wyandottes... These are ????? Ameraucanas???)

Tip two, they don't spell the name correctly. They sell Americanas not Ameraucanas.

It sounds like maybe they are ESL or have a communication related disability. It sure looks like a wheaten to my eyes.

The hens are definitely mixed. I think they're saying the hens are GL Wyandotte and Ameraucana mix. I don't care about the hens, tbh. They can go live with a friend, get rehomed, or be used for eggs or chicken meat.

Phone number is local which seems legit. We have a lot of ESL people in the area.

The real question is whether he's better than ol pale-legs-whose-sister-layed-brown-eggs over here;

Kinda hard to say I think.

So far 5 hens from his eggs have layed blue/green which is promising but the other 7 aren't laying yet.

The rooster in the add has dark legs... but do they have a green tinge?

Shudder

If those dark legs are pure slate... yeah, might be nice to add him in.... depending on what his face looks like.

If those legs have green in them... don't add the nightmare of even more unwanted genetics.

I've asked them to send me closer photos. Maybe I'll get some answers. :p
