    I have a really dark "Blue Wheaten Ameraucana" purchased from a breeder and would like to see if that's what it really is. It had an almost black hour glass shape on it's back. It's 2 wks old now and feathers are mostly dark gray with a TINY bit of light brown and cream color. Does this sound right? Any pics of what he/she might look like full grown? I saw her bumping chests with a mille fleur d'uccle (boy, I think, 1/2 her size) today. Pretty funny!

    I'm just so surprised that a Wheaten and Blue Wheaten would look so completely different. I got 1 of each.

    Thanks for any help!

    Thanks. I've looked there before and their pics are of all yellow chicks. I did finally see 2 pics yesterday in my google search that had a dark one in the batch of wheaten and blue wheaten. So atleast I feel better about what I got. I'm just so surprised at the huge difference in the 2. [​IMG] I'd still like to see what such a dark chick looks like full grown. She's bumping chests with the d'uccle again. Makes me wonder if it's a she.
