    this is my new Ameraucana (pullet?) "Taffy" i just got from Grifs feed store. there were about one hundred Ameraucana chicks in their brooder, but only two whites stood out among the darker ones. one was a yellow chick that apeared to be buff; the other, this? i just had to have it!!! can anyone tell me what she will look like when she will get older? or mabe just post a pick in this thread of what she might be? she looks nothing like the easter egger pullet i have (black and white featherd bird in the picture.) my easter egger looks like the dark ones in the brooder at Grifs. by her look i would say she is two weeks old. my easter egger is 4 weeks old. if you know what she (the easter egger) might look like, please let me know too.

    I doubt those are true Ameraucana's those are easter eggers the hens will still lay blue/green eggs but in order to get true Ameraucana's you have to go to a breeder and the chicks are very expensive So I would say they are both Easter eggers...and the dark easter egger you have posted above I think will be a rooster just by my experience the EE's colored like the dark one are roos and the lighter ones are hens.

    i know the the darker one in the pic is an easter egger. but the other one i was told was a true ameraucana. ive heard that the feed stores do that. thank you for letting me know that they are both EEs. imagine if i sold an EE pullet saying it was an Ameraucana! lots a clucking. do you have a full body pic of what the dark one will look like? oh and i bought Bantam Laven Ameraucana eggs on ebay! i really want a true ameraucana!

    They are both easter eggers. The lighter one has yellow legs which indicates yellow skin and the darker one with green legs again an indicator of yellow skin.
