    Legs can change color after hatching, sometimes they are yellow from yolk absorbtion abd can turn green once it's out of their system.

    What I thought to be Ameraucanas, though I had my suspicions, are indeed easter eggers. I have 4 and one Dixie Rainbow. Here are my Lil loveys.

    I think that's the rite of passage for all eventual Easter Egger addicts... "Well, I -thought- I was getting Ameraucanas...." Next thing you know you're in love with these wonderful little mutts that you were tricked into buying and you want a hundred more. lol

    I ordered 3 "auracauna" chicks from my local feed store....to bedeliveredthe end of April.

    Can anyone give me advice on how to pick them out? They're supposedly sexed. Is there something I can look for to rule out Roos? I want pretty birds and colorful eggs. Do darker colored legs mean greener or olive eggs? Should I pick 3 different colors or look for puffy cheeks?

    Does anyone have chick to adult pics or know where I can find a chart online?

    Thanks!

    I just pick the lively, running around, and eating chicks. Cuteness doesn't hurt either.
