    Hi everybody. These six birds are supposedly all pullets and Ameraucanas. They are all five months old, and haven't laid yet. My main question is are they bantams or standard birds? My not-as-important question is if "Ameraucanas" do not have the exact coloring of the standard but everything else is pure, does that make them Easter Eggers? These pullets are from Cackle Hatchery, and the picture on their website shows non-solid, non-standard colors. Is it still Ameraucana?? Here are some pictures. This is Tawnbomb

    Cackle Hatchery means EEs and they look like large fowl. Very pretty though!

    Get some Cochins or Silkies to go with them...you won't be able to stop the broodiness! I currently have 1 Cochin that just got done raising chicks, a Silkie with chicks, and 2 more Silkies sitting. [​IMG]
