    My roo Ivan was bought from a hatchery as americana, i know most of their chicks end up as EE's but he's looking pretty good to me! Think he's a ture Americana or just another EE?? sorry for all the pictures, he's just a camera hog!

    He's a beautiful Easter Egger! [​IMG]

    Purebred Ameraucanas have muffs/beards and blue slate legs (his are willow green).

    That's an EE, gorgeous though! It's really hard to get purebred Ameraucanas at a hatchery...

    Wow he's getting a bit of attention! I figured they were all EE's but he develpoed the different comb than the other two boys, but I totally forgot the whole muffs and beard deal which he never grew, but the other little ones did get theirs.
