    no.....I do not see anything that looks like my Ameracauna..... or Easter Egger. Maybe they are al EASTER EGGERS.. Those are crossbreeds between Ameracaunas and any other chicken and they lay a variety of colors from white brown green or blue.

    . #1 too early for me to guess...

    #2 Australarp

    #3 RIR

    #4 Australarp

    #5 Australarp


    excuse the spelling... but you get my drift.

    I purchased two "Americaunas" from two different feed stores and the Americauna experts on BYC said that I probably have Easter Eggers and that many feed stores are misinformed about the breed.

    I would get them cuz they are cute but not for colored eggs at all. They will all prob lay light brown eggs

    Yes well... Just figured out that the pics were stolen from a very good breeder 10 minutes from my house [​IMG] [​IMG] Went on their website to look at leg color, and realized the pics were the same as in the ad [​IMG] Already PM'd the breeder [​IMG]

    Needless to say, no chickies for me!
