    I was given two girls today that the owners said are Ameraucanas. They bought them at a feed store as chicks...One has a very distinct muff (beard?) and the other does not. Do EE's have these? They are sweet and beautiful and I'm happy to have them. Just curious about them...
    Their legs are green.

    I tried to get good pictures but the phone camera is unreliable and those girls can move. I don't know how you all get some of those amazing chicken photos! (not with a phone camera!)

    Very pretty EEs!!! EEs can have beards/muffs or not, depends on which parent they are inheriting traits from. Bip and Bop!! LOVE the names!!!! [​IMG]

    I figured they were EE's...but I know how much we all like to look at photos of chickens around here.

    When they told me the names of the girls I was delighted; they're perfect.
    These lovely girls are just over a year old and lay a blue/green egg. I can hardly wait to see one!
