As you know, we are raising our brood of 27. 14 are Ameraucanas and the others were 'supposedly' all Easter Eggers. Well, the hatchery called me today which I thought was odd, and told me they think they messed up and threw in an extra of another breed. They asked if I had a chick that looked 'different' (which if you have Ameracanas and Easter Eggers is ALREADY hard to tell!) and I went to look and at first didnt notice anything unusual so I told them no and that everyone was fine. They said it was alright and no big deal, just that they had 'misplaced' a chick somewhere that day. Appearantly, the daughter breeds chickens on her own and charges much more for them. She is out of town and her chicks hatched out the same day as our order did. I hung up thinking two things: 1) why does a hatchery care about one chick? and 2) oooo, did I get something neat? Well, I went back up to look them all over once more and I think maybe I did! One of them appears to be breed standard for an Araucana! It is the only one that has no tail, and its 'bum' is actually 'shorter' than the others (rumpless) and its the only one to have little tufts sticking out of its cheeks. Its really cute and I hope maybe it is pure and maybe 'fair show' quality? The whole thing just kinda weirded me out so I had to share it!
