    Hi there,

    My friend and I got our ameraucana chicks from the same feed store at the same time and hers is starting to grow feathers on her legs, my girl does not have this. Is there anybody that has seen this before with this breed? We are both new to chickens so we aren't sure if this is normal for the breed or not. Thank you in advance, Pictures attached below [​IMG]

    Welcome! It's not an Ameraucana, or an Easter Egger. Is it a very tiny chick? Looks like a bantam to me, if so. Find out what breeds the hatchery carries, or ask at the feed store. Cute chick! Mary

    Interesting, we got them at the same time. Here is a pic of my girl, Hazel. Do you think she is an ameraucana or Easter egger? Thank you!
