    Purchased as ameraucanas, but I'm wary...

    I'm seeing pink legs everywhere. Most likely EEs, although even on "pure" EEs I find it weird to see that many pink legs. 99% of the EE stock I work with, from various hatcheries, shows a slate or willow leg. I can only think of a very few which have shown pink or yellow.

    Generally speaking, unless the bird was purchased from a reputable breeder and sold as a specific color (Black Ameraucana, Blue Ameraucana, Wheaten Ameraucana, etc.) it's going to be an Easter Egger.

    Edit: And looking back at that black one, I don't think that's even an EE.

    They're Easter Eggers. The black one isn't bearded and the brown ones aren't recognized colors. :)

    I bought the black one as a barred rock but thought maybe it was the ameraucana in the bunch lol ...cause I don't think it's a barred rock

    Not a BR for sure, it doesn't have a spot on its head. Looks like something pure black.

    The black one doesn't look like a barred rock, it would have a spot on its head. It looks like a black australorp or black jersey giant.

    The hatchery they came from doesn't have either of those types. I suspect he's an EE too... I have a few other black chicks that look different from him. Also supposed to be barred rock but no spot...
