    About a year ago, I ordered five Ameracaunas from the mypetchicken hatchery. I saw that only Ameracaunas from Private breeders are purebred. The Ameracaunas that I got from mypetchicken lay green/blue eggs. Does that mean they actually are purebred?

    MPCs site clearly states that they only sell EE chicks, that is where my two beautiful girls came from last year. I think they do offer Ameracauna hatching eggs though. You are lucky some of yours lay blue eggs, both of mine lay green [​IMG]
    I was hoping for one blue and one green.

    No, they also have to be a recognized variety and have to have other characteristics like correct eye and leg color. Other than that, along with body type, I can't think of anything else. Hopefully an Ameraucana breeder will comment here.

    I only have three now. Two died as chicks. I have two that lay green eggs and 1 that lays blue. I should be getting five more Ameracaunas from MYP along with my Cuckoo Marans in about a week.

    would be better to see a pic but they most likely are EEs

    I think true ameracauna are tail-less. You don't see them very often. Most of the birds that people call ameracauna are EE.

    Quote:Araucanas are the tailless ones. But that looks like a very nice EE to me. She's pretty!

    Thanks, the other ones are pretty too, I will try to post pics tomorrow of them. The gray one was a mommy and she was VERY protective. Her chicks are too old now to be with her..they grow up so fast! [​IMG] >>> [​IMG] >>>> [​IMG]
