    I think I got an Ameracauna chick at TSC today but today I was surfing online and looked at some pics of danish leghorns. Is there any people with pics of those two breeds so I can tell what they are thanks

    Most TSC I've been to sell the Easter Eggers. You can tell if you have one by the feet. They will be greenish.


    These are my EE's:
    Can you see the poofy cheeks?

    I have 2 danish brown leghorns a little over a week old (no good pics yet) they look just like the pics on the link Havi posted....
    Mine have yellow legs.

    It is remarkable how the coloring is so close in the two breeds.

    mine looks like a danish leghorn. except do ameracaunas have a stripe on there back that looks like a chipmunk? It has a stripe on its back and it is really crazy I think it has AD HD. It's legs are yellowish pink and he is very small but not bantam size. No the wild child does not have puffy cheeks. I will post some pics when and if I find my camera.

    sorry I ment AD HD It is a hyperactive disorder He is hyper OMG. He runs around pecks my hand then jumps in it then he will run around in circles chasing all the other chicks. Then he eats, drinks, poops, and sleeps. The cycle continues. He is a guy though. He earned the name Rancid.

    Unfortunately, there are several breeds that look like little chipmunks as babies. Makes it hard to tell sometimes. Yours does sound like a Brown Leghorn, though. Leghorns are supposed to be spastic, hyper, flighty, little birds (though my experience has not shown that) and they are a very petitie bird. My Brown Leghorn baby is one of the smallest in the brooder.

    I don't have a rooster. My adults are white (and both hens) and my only brown one isn't quite 3 weeks old yet (and better be female).
