    When we got them from the store, they said were ameraucanas. Now, I discovered EEs, and soon as I Googled them - I saw pictures of both of my hens, and the pictures showed identical designs.

    Here is the most recent photo of them:

    Easter Eggers, (EEs) are wonderful layers and generally good natured.

    I lost a bunch to a predator last year and I intend to replace them.

    Your girl in the far left picture looks just like my Americauna. How can you tell the difference?

    Maybe I have EEs.....

    Quote:They're Easter Eggers. Trust me, and the 50,000 members who agree. [​IMG] I'm not sure why, but feed stores make that mistake a lot. [​IMG]
