    Hello all,
    I picked up 2 GLW's and 1 Araucana Wednesday, I don't know anything about the Araucana breed except they are often confused with Americanas and EE's, so tell me what you think?
    She has puffy little cheeks, and I think her legs are green...?
    I just don't know, you tell me [​IMG]
    The feed store had her listed as an Araucana....so what's the verdict?

    Thanks so much!!

    Don't know myself.. But she looks just like mine I got at the feed store. So can't wait to find out.

    feed store = EE
    true ameraucana and true araucana come from only breeders....
    The best thing about EE's is you never know what they will look like when they grow up, always a surprise [​IMG]

    And are her legs green? I have never seen green legs in person, just photos...

    maybe someone else has had one that is similar that can show pics of what it may look similar to.....other than that it's hard to tell...
