    Looking for a good home for Bobert, our approx. 3 month old Ameraucana rooster, located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Hand-raised by our 12-year old son, he is docile and easy to care for. Unfortunately we can not keep him, due to noise ordinances. He is a wonderful fellow!

    Please let me know if you have any questions, we are willing to deliver him within a wide radius.

    Thanks,

    Alison

    That is an EE, not a true Ameraucana [​IMG]

    I'm going off what the feed store told me. How can I tell the difference? What are the quick give-aways? I did a quick web search that didn't exactly help...

    Quote:Feed stores and hatcheries only sell Easter Eggers, they will call them Araucanas, or Ameraucanas. For true Araucanas or Ameraucanas, you have to get them from a "reputable" breeder. [​IMG] Pretty boy though!!

    ETA: EE's also usually have green legs (though not always). They can have just about any feather color, egg color, or other traits, as they are mixes.
