    These were sold to me by a breeder as Ameraucanas- they are around 4weeks. Do they look like Ameraucanas or are they EE? I know it's still pretty early to tell yet but do any look like pullets?

    I'm seeing all pullets, but I can't weigh in on the EE vs. Ameraucanas.

    For now, they all look like Easter Egger pullets to me.

    Ameraucanas are an accepted breed, with standards they are bred to (to which they breed true- like consistent colors and traits). EEs are not. They are basically just mixed breed chickens that lay pretty eggs (and theres nothing wrong with that, I have and have had several and I love them :) ).

    Wow really? All pullets? That would be awesome! I live in town so I can't have a rooster. I had kinda hoped they were really Ameraucanas though. I did see the parents. The cock was a beautiful Blue Wheaten and the breeder told me he was from a particular line- I can't remember the name. Oh well- what I want is sweet birds and some pretty blue eggs. If these are really all four pullets hopefully I'll get plenty of those in a few months!
