    Okay so I have posted these guys once before when they were still juvies LOL. I wanted to post newer pics and see if I get the same results. These are two of my "Aracauna" roos. We all came to the conclusion that they were in fact EEs despite the local breeders advertisment of them being Aracaunas lol. So what is the new verdict?

    Both EE Roos. Nice looking guys!

    Aracaunas have feather tufts on their cheeks not muffs.

    Definitely not Aracaunas because they are bearded instead of having tufts. That would make them Ameraucanas if they were recognized varieties and laid blue eggs. They could have purebred Ameraucana parents but of varieties that shouldn't be mixed, can't tell that for sure without more pictures. So they are EEs. For a reference check out this page or better yet the Easter Egger Club.
