    These are supposedly aracuanas, but i thought they were rumpless, they both have muffs, and have dark shanks and feet, i cant tell what the combs are, but they are not single.

    They are EEs. Araucana do not have muffs/beards - they have tufts. Very pretty tho. I like how they posed for you. [​IMG]

    Definately some beautiful EEs. They are pea combed it looks like three little ridges and the middle is a little bigger and by the looks of the combs you have two girls [​IMG]. Ameraucana have slate legs EEs usually have the green but since they are crosses can be anything. The hatcheries are bad about selling EE as either Araucana or Ameraucana but you get your colored eggs either way.
