What breed ofchicken has facial feathers that stick out like the ones in the picture?
Maybe has Araucana in it? I know they have tufts instead of muffs. If those feathers are a muff I would say it has Ameraucana in it. Just guesses since I am pretty new at this.
That looks like an Easter egger. Some hatcheries sell them as Araucana or Ameraucana. The Araucana are actually very different. Ameraucana do have a full beard like that, too. You'd have to get them from a private breeder - I don't think any hatcheries have them.
EEs are great birds, and lay pretty greenish blue eggs!
Thanks for the posts. We got 6 from our dd's class and I think the teacher said something about Amera-something for some of the eggs.They got them locally from a lady who breeds.They only had 6 out of 24 hatch.
You guys are good. I am going to try and get a picture of each chicken to post!
They look like ee`s to me to but faverolles have that cute muffy face to, they could be crss breeds
Easter Egger however,they were probably told it was an Ameraucana since you mentioned Amera something.Many people mistakenly call them that even those that breed them call them wrong.These chicks are not an accepted color to be Ameraucana
Looks like you have a rooster in there as well
The part that sticks out sideways are muffs. Under the beak is a beard. The bird is an Easter Egger, which is often mistaken for a true Ameraucana, something the hatcheries don't seem to have. Araucanas are a completely different breed, much more rare than even Ameraucanas and they have ear tufts, which are different from muffs.
