    New to the site. Bought these two at a feed store labeled Ameracauna but they have different coloring than the pure Ameracaunas. Does anyone know if these are Ameracauna or Easter egger or Aracauna?[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    The best place to ask is "what breed or gender is this." They need clear photos and age of bird.

    Welcome to BYC. It's great to have you!

    Those are Easter Eggers. You won't get a pure Ameraucana or Araucana at a feed store.

    Pretty EE. YOu can type in the search bar for the true Americauna breed. And then also check out the pure Auracona breed.
