    So I bought three chicks a few weeks back from a local breeder here. One barnyard mix, one ameraucauna and one EE. I could swear this one was the Ameraucauna but he has green legs. Hmmm!!
    He is a snotty little critter already and I'm assuming it's a cockerel? Opinions? He's right about 7 weeks.

    Hmm, well attitude aside I'm not sure if she gave me the wrong chick or if I mixed these two up. For the life of me I can't wrap my head around how I would have mixed them up but when I noticed green legs.....well!!! I'll have to take a picture of the other one and see if it's an ee or an ameraucauna. It does have the slate legs.

    Oh, I remember now. I KNOW I didn't mix them up. The breeder must have. Grrr!!! I will be back with a pic of the other one.

    I wonder if her ameraucauna are really ameraucauna.

    This bird does look like a blue Ameraucana. That comb is awfully red, I think its a cockerel.
     
    Chicken Girl1 and Ol Grey Mare like this.
