    Are these bantam Ameracaunas or D'anvers? I've been told they are D'anvers & then told they bantam Ameracaunas. They lady who gavethem to me said she lays blue eggs, but after a month no eggs, yet.[​IMG]

    If she (supposedly) lays blue eggs, then I think she would be an Ameraucana. [​IMG] I'm honestly not 100% sure, since the two breeds look so similar.

    Ameraucana have a pea comb, looks like bumpy ridges. D'Anvers have rose combs, looks like a wedge.

    That's what has me so confused. They look almost identical to me and because she hasn't laid any eggs, yet, all I have to go on is what my mom's friend said when she gave me them.

    Post a good photo of the combs. Pea combs don't look anything like rose combs.

    Those are bantam Ameraucanas... and most likely a young pullet by the looks of her comb... she won't be ready to lay eggs until her comb reddens up...
