    Tonight I bought 2 easter egg chickens. 1 for sure roo and 1 that was supposed to be a hen...but i think hes a roo too. anyways, the one i will keep has a Muff & not just cheek poofs. which breed is this? i know theyre purebred the feed store gets theirs from McMurray...hes just gorgeous. They are both blues with red wings...and a few other colors. the roo i will keep has white hackle feathers. I will have a picture up soon....of both of them. Thanks everyone!

    actually the hatcheries only sell easter eggers, they do not sell pure araucana or ameraucana. They are very pretty, but not purebred. The only way to get pure araucana or ameraucana is to get them from a private breeder
