Can anyone tell me if this is an ameruacana or an
araucana and if it is a rooster or a hen???
Looks like an Easter Egger
Aracuanas are rumpless.
looks like Americauna, could be a roo, how old?
I am 100% positive that is an easter egger hen.
If you got them from Farm and Home, and THEY got them from a big hatchery, then your 'ameruacanas' are probably EE's - green/blue egg layers that don't meet the criteria for either breed. Great chickens none-the-less, but not purebreeds.
For the whole Ameruacana/Araucana/EE debate see the FAQs at the Ameraucana Breeder's Assn website:
Could you get a better comb pic?
Easter egger hen.
Thats the best picture that I have... sorry.
Looks like a single comb so I would say hen
