I'm new to chickens, and the answers don't really matter since I <3 all my girls (hopefully all girls), but I'm curious. I have 2 chickens that were sold to me by my normally very reputable feed store as Ameraucanas, but I'm really starting to think they are EEs. Which is fine because I just wanted colored eggs and docile birds. These EE/AM are about 11 weeks old. Both have greenish black legs. Autumn has ear tufts, Pearl does not. Both have tails. Autumn & Pearl Close up of autumn sleeping on my knee, her grey underneath is almost lavender, you can almost see it in the first picture. 2nd question - I have a silkie chick that is about 5-6 weeks old, given to me by a friend as the rest of her silkie peeps were taken by predators in her free range flock and she knew I wanted one. Not sure what color the parentage is but both parents were silkies (I think the dad was black, but the mom could be any of buff, white, black or splash). What color do you think she will turn out to be?
