    Has anyone ever heard of or tried working with lacing patterns in Ameraucanas? I have Ameraucanas and haven't heard of them ever having lacing, only solid colors or splash/wheaten, until I met this woman who said she had Am's with the gold lace pattern. I bought 3 from her knowing they may be EE's or something else entirely but thought they're pretty so we'll see how they turn out. They have clean purple legs and muffs, but no beards. They are only 2-3 weeks old though so a lot of growing to do to see what they are. I will post pictures later.

    You will have to show us the ameraucanas when they get older, and have their adult plumage. I have heard of lacing projects in ameraucanas, but i'm not quite sure that they are ameraucana because of the not having beards, and ameraucana should have slate legs not purple. I bet they will be beautiful chickens when they get full grown.

    I was looking on here for lacing projects but didn't get a chance to really look around yet. And yes your right. I double checked the chicks to make sure and thier legs are a dark grey, with no pink on thier toes like the Easter Eggers I have do. I don't remember when our Ameraucanas got thier beards, maybe 15 weeks, I'm not sure but yes it's going to be a long, impatient wait to see how they turn out lol

    I also meant to take pics but haven't had the time. I will soon though.
