    Actually, this video demonstrates how chicks forage with a broody perfectly. Notice how at the end, one squeezes under the mama hen to get warm. A few minutes later, once it'd warmed up again, it popped out and went back to foraging.

    Ameracaunas lay green eggs that sometimes are a bluefish color

    According to the APA, they have to lay blue eggs or they aren't Ameracaunas. I don't make the rules. I'm just telling you what the standard for the breed is. No green eggs.

    Right, but it looks identical to my two silver laced wyandottes, so couldnt it be one or the other? Besides a "because I say so", is there a certain feature you know that differentiates the two as chicks?

    JaceAgain..... here is an FAQ on Ameracaunas that probably will answer your questions. Good luck.

    I have been reading up on ameracaunas, thanks. Was there anything specifically you wanted to point out? EEs seem to be such a heinz 57 breed that they don't have ant real markers for what they are.

    Not really. I thought from what I read you had some questions but maybe you were responding to someone else who had questions. I don't have EE's, Ameracaunas or Araucanas. I have Marans that lay chocolate eggs and everybody knows that chocolate eggs beat Easter eggs all to heck. [​IMG]
