    i'm sure there is already a decent explanation of this here somewhere, but i'm having a hard time finding it, so i'm going to ask again. what is the differences between the three blue/green egg laying breeds (or are there more that i don't know of?). i have some info already. it is my understanding that Araucanas in the US and the UK differ slightly, i think US are all rumpless whereas UK can be either? EEs are pretty much any mutt bird that lays blue/green eggs? so what about the ameraucanas? and what are the other differences?

    thanks.

    that you so much, that is exactly what i was looking for.

    not that i ever suspected my three of being anything else, they are definitely EEs. however, now i want some of both the actual breeds. must repeat to myself, not getting any more chicks this year, not getting any more this year. [​IMG]
