    Hi I am new to chickens. I bought some hens and a rooster. The guys said they were Ameraucana's. They lay blue eggs, but I've been reading EE'S look similar. Please help![​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    I believe they are genuine Ameracaunas - did you buy them from a breeder? They generally cost much more than an Easter Egger. You can post photos of them at "what breed or gender is this." and get the opinions of various experts.

    Thank you! Yes I bought them from a local breeder. But he sells anything from quail to turkeys, so I wasn't sure about them. I had never heard of them until then. I paid about double the price of a normal chicken. I was just wondering if I paid to much.
