    Ok, so these boys were given to me and We were told they were Amaraucanas. I have heard so much talk about the whether they were EEs or Amaraucanas that I thought maybe some of you could tell me.

    I am confused to - which breeds have the rumpless tail, beards or muffs? I only know that ee's are mixed and lay greenish eggs. [​IMG]

    I think it would be OK. Or you could PM a moderator and ask them to move it for you.

    Quote:No, EE's are mutts that lay colored eggs. Many hatcheries sell them as Ameraucanas and Araucanas. There is a difference. Ameraucanas and Araucanas are purebred.

    Quote:I don't know the exact standard for these breeds, but Ameraucanas have beards, muffs, and a tail. Not sure on the recognized varieties.

    Araucanas have tuffs and are rumpless (no tail). Not sure on their color varieties either.

    You have EE's though.
