    My first little Ameraucana! I'm so thrilled.. I'm clueless on what color he's going to be. Can you tell this early (born a couple hours ago!!)? I bought him as a blue/black/ splash. I'm guessing black is out? Thanks so much!!

    Probably blue, but maybe black. Splash is out. He's a cutie!

    Congrats, he's precious!!

    I'd say probably blue?

    He looks like one mine did at a day or so old: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=382727
    The
    one under "#1". Looked just like him at that size!

    Does yours have feathered feet, too?

    *Edit: Or wait, so yours is purbred Ameraucana? Mine are just "Easter Eggers" of some sort. [​IMG]
