    Here's our chickens that we were told were araucanas but I think they are more likely easter eggers or ameraucanas. They all have slate colored legs. Does anyone have any constructive opinions? Thanks

    This is houdini

    This is good... I've started wondering what one of mine is. She lays blue eggs (well, she's only laid 2). I thought she was an americauna, but as I've been reading, I've started to change my mind, but not sure what she is. I'll start my research on EE's to see if that's more what she looks like! This was very helpful [​IMG]

    Thanks for the responses. It seems the consensus is that they are Easter Eggers. Houdini got her name because she like to disappear and reappear from the run area. Little Jerry got her name as a result of a Seinfeld episode. The name Little Miss Do Your Own Thing is kinda self-explanatory.
