I bought some baby blue ameraucanas, and wound up with this one pullet...is she considered a splash?
Unsure, but she is gorgeous!
No, she's. . . . an Easter Egger, honestly.
That bird looks like she has some melanizers or barring, some dun? alleles, and blue in her. Her color is unrecognized, and honestly looks like someone put some colors in there that Ameraucanas don't even carry.
But, technically, she's blue.
. . . . Is that green I see on her feet? If so, she's definitely an Easter Egger, sorry.
No, she's an ee.
Her feet are a really dark greyish...i thought the pattern on her breast feathers seemed too regular, but i dunno not really barred...I got a roo who was white with black in the hackles and tail and speckled all over, looked more splash, but i didn't need another roo...
Oh well I'll just stick with my whites
Quote:White with black hackles and tail is a definite Easter Egger alarm. It's a common EE rooster coloring, especially if you add in golden hackles or speckling of black, gold, or red on the body.
Her muffs are fabulously large.
I hope that doesn't sound wrong.
Well one thing is certain, she's got the biggest beard I've ever seen. I don't see much muff there at all though, honestly.
She has a super fluffy face no red/gold in either of them, but similar color placement on the roo, just black instead of grey/blue...weird! This just makes me love whites all the more!
Quote:Ok, well, I have difficulty differentiating Muffs, Tufts, and now Beards.(?!)
I understood Muffs is feathering that located under the earlobes that follow around the head towards the neck.
