I have a bunch of barnyard mixes, all bantams but three are bigger and have beards and muffs. It’s possible they are half ameraucana. The farmer I got them from has one standard size ameraucana roo. Anyway 4 out of 5 of my littler pullets have started laying and have really bright red faces. But the other three have more greyish faces and so many feathers it’s hard to see their skin! Will they get as red when they’re ready to lay? I’m unsure of their exact age but all are approx 24 weeks!
