This is Mimi And this is Violet We got them at 1 week from a local breeder who told us they were Ameracauna's - from chickens he had shown at fairs and such. We wanted friendly backyard chickens as family pets who happen to lay eggs. They are both 18 weeks old. I've been doing research on Ameracauna's and EE and when I posted pics of them on another thread, someone quickly said they were EE. So I'm confused. Anyone out there an expert who can set me straight? As I said - these are pets and part of our family - it would be nice to know, though, that we were calling them the right thing. And I don't want to get blasted by anyone on BYC for claiming to have one thing when I have another though most people are quite gracious from what I've seen. Thanks!
