    I personally would never had done this, but I certainly wouldn't have predicted this comb, either. My brother in law just brought me 8 birds from a guy who is moving from FL to Costa Rica.

    One being a Auracana or Ameraucana crossed with Serama. Don't know if the mom or dad was the Serama. [​IMG]

    Any thoughts on which it would be, and what the other would be. He has mated with the Frizzle hen (1 that came with the group) and she has laid 2 blue/green eggs. Can you imagine that mutt? Friz-acana-rama?! [​IMG]

    oh dear! [​IMG] Do you think the Serama to his left is his Dad???

    here he is with the frizzle hen:

    Leah-yes I know I'm crazy :

    Well, they are in love, so there are certainly more eggs to come. And can you believe she is molting and has been laying up to brother-in-laws move on Sunday and over to here on Monday??

    They will be cute chicks [​IMG]

    I see no araucanas there. An araucana is rumpless and sometimes has tufts (that look like a handlebar mustache). Doesnt look like americana either. Maybe just an EE. He is handsome though, does look a little like that serama may have played a part here. [​IMG]

    Just noticed the leg feathering, none of the breeds listed have leg feathering. So someone else snuck in there. [​IMG]

    Yep...definitely some Light Brahma in there. The legs are that off-green color so possibly Ameracauna x Light Brahma? BUT...then that would mean the comb of one of the parents was single...but...oh well...LOL

    I thought so too, esp after going to the Ameraucana website, but the guy bred an Ameraucana or Auracana with a Serama...not an Easter Egger...

    Here's some better photos...notice the feathered legs.

    Quote:Not possible..the guy has only bred and raised Serama, Amer or Arau and Frizzle. It is for sure a project that he started of breeding a Serama w/ the big bird. Nothing else....

    Well, I have to say there is no way that that is a serama x ameraucana or araucana. First of all neither breed has feathered shanks. I have to agree it probably was an EE, most people think they have ameraucana because the hatcheries sell them as such, but are truly just EEs. Now there is a chance that the parent was a frizzle as most frizzles are cochins which have feathered shanks, which throw smooth feathered chicks. Is it likely a frizzle x serama?
