PULLETS PULLETS PULLETS PULLETS!!!!!!!
thank you! I love the look of EE's. They come in such variations!
Hi you guys! Been a while since I been on this forum! How are you all? Hope u all r doing good. I am down to only 2 EEs. we sold 10 for a generator. Pretty even trade I think. Hopefully I can get some more EEs soon. We are moving so we don't really have the best setup for a lot of chickens now. but in time I will get some more babies! About to make the last load. Washer an dryer. Except hubby's tools. That alone will be an all day task! Lol! Good night all!
Oh I hope you're right. Thank you
The sad thing is you can cross two pure Ameraucanas....say a "pure"white one with a "pure" black one and you would have to call your chicks EEs because they would not fit the "standards" for color. You will have messed with the "pure" white genes and the "pure" black genes! Those chicks would no longer breed true to their color.
Hi, I have a question about my EE, she is 10.5wks old and I've noticed some behavior changes in her. She chases the other pullets somewhat and fluffs up her hackles. I was hoping she is just clarifying her pecking order and not a Roo!?!? What is everyone's opinion looking at her pictures????
;-) That may be why the chicks sold by a lot of hatcheries are called "Ameraucana" but are "really" Easter Eggers... they have non-standard/non-show-quality colors? I have had really good luck with the ones I picked out at the hatchery, as well as their daughters off a silver/splash Ameraucana (from a local breeder): all of my girls lay eggs from turquoise (one hen and her daughter produce a sort of lime-green bloom on theirs, another hen and -her- daughter's are a nice even aqua tone...) to one exceptional 2nd gen gal who lays a perfectly powder blue egg every other day.
I say I'm lucky in that I didn't want really muddy colored eggs, but now I have seen some from "olive eggers" made by crossing Ameraucana/EE's with Marans which produce a really rich tone.
Has anybody crossed Welsummer with a blue-egg layer here? I'm curious b/c Wellies are supposed to have a more reddish egg than the chocolate-color of Marans. I secretly want lilac-grey birds that lay pale purple colored eggs! LOL
Going out on a limb & guessing pecking order: her comb is so tiny! that should be showing more at this age if it was male, right?
I don't see anything that screams cockerel.
