    [​IMG]I ordered 25 Ameraucanna pullets from Randall Burkey, a Texas Company last March and this hen is simular to the others. There was one rooster in the order. The hens lay a robin's egg blue egg. I have some two month old chicks from them. Also are they able to be sexed by color? 4 of them are the color of the hen pictured and 5 are colored like the rooster. One of the ones colored like the rooster resemble a pullet. Do you think this rooster is a" package peanut" out of another group? PS: That is not a two headed hen. Just a "package Peanut" in that order. It wasn't noticible for a few days until I noticed the guinea had black on his legs, instead of green..

    Yep, those are EE's. Usually hatcheries sell EE's as Ameraucanas.
