    Bought 5 chicks from a gal who claimed that they were true ameraucanas. They are now 10 weeks old. 2 of the 5 have developed muffs and beards while the other 3 have not. Are they EE's or something completely different?[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    The grey one doesn't look like a ameraucana or EE because she doesn't have a pea/rose comb. Could you post pics of the others? ameraucanas come in certain colors.

    Actually, does she have a pea comb? I can't tell in the pic.
     
  4. To be honest, looks like a LAVENDER ORPINGTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Does it have a Single comb?
    If it is a Lav Orp, YOU ARE LUCKY!

    See I used to have a lavender Orpington that died and I was thinking that that was what these looked like. It is a single comb. These are photos of the ones that look like ameraucanas. [​IMG]

    That darker gray bird is a beauty. I'd say EE on her though, and lavender orp on your other.

    Check the bottoms of the feet. If the skin is yellow, they are Easter Eggers. If white, pink, or grey they are Ameraucana.

    This one looks like a Lavender Orpington. The others are either Blue Ameraucanas or Easter Eggers (more likely).
