    Got four more chicks today to add to my 3 BO's and Polish mix. We have a Leghorn, Brahma, and two Ameraucanas (at least TSC says). I've been reading more about EE's and now I'm a bit confused. So I'm asking you all to see these are really Ameraucana's. Here are some pics!

    If you got them from
    TSC then they are hatchery chicks which makes them EEs. I think it's terrible that hatcheries call them Ameraucanas when they aren't. However EEs are wonderful birds who usually lay blue or green eggs. All of the EEs I have had in the past were very friendly.

    It is a bit dumb that hatcheries call them Ameraucana's. I'm happy they are EE's. I've been wanting a few. I'll be sure to tell my friends! Thanks! :)

    Feed store= Easter egger.

    Good thing is, folks just want a bird that lays pretty eggs. That's what Easter eggers do. No one's looking for a bird that meets any Standard of Perfection at a feed store.
