    All of these were sold as sexed Americana pullets. Of course, one of them turned out to be a rooster, but are they Americana?

    Here is the little rooster:

    legs are yellow:

    One of this year's pullets:

    another foot shot:

    Last year's flock: she's moulting, so looking a little rough!

    leg shot:
    it doesn't show well in the pic, but legs are a greenish-grey. When they were young, they were the same yellow as this year's flock.

    So, which is it??

    that's what I thought after reading the forums here. I don't really care either way, just a bit ticked off at the extra $$ a bird. It's not much but it does add up.
    I think I'll give them a call since they sell both EE and Americanas, with the Americana's being almost $1 more per chick.

    EE's. http://www.ameraucana.org/standard.html here is the standard for them. You can even show them the standards of what they are to look like to be classified as ameraucana's. Sorry you paid extra and didn't get what you wanted.
