    So, I picked up these little fluff balls at the feed store the other day. At the feed store they said they were "real Amereucana's".
    Can anyone verify that for me? How can you tell the difference?

  2. They have muffs, so they might be.

    Two things lead me to believe they aren't. First is where you got them. Although they said real, feed stores normally don't have a source to supply a large amount of true ameraucanas. Second, what little bit of leg I see, the color isn't correct. Regardless, they are cute and good luck.

    I thought the same thing -- about buying them at the feed store. I just wanted to double check though. Here is a close up picture with the legs.
