    Surprise! My son picked out the two fuzziest, grayist, smallest chicks in the bunch. I'm betting they are too young to identify by their pics so I will post those later. The farmer called them Blue Ameralusions. Have you ever heard of such a chicken?

    I bet you guys are right about them being Blue Andalusians. It's kinda hard to tell. He guessed them to be betwen three and five days old on Saturday. One is getting lighter and the other is turning dark on its body. I don't really care what kind of chicks they are but I did get worried when i couldn't find anything about "Ameralasians" anywhere. Thanks!

    Maybe a cross of Americana and Blue Andalusians (sp?) ?

    that's kind of what i wondered. Is it okay to cross breed and give the newbies any name you like?[​IMG]

    No, it generally causes a lot of confusion. It's better to say Breed (roo) X breed (hen). Or mutt.

    They look like andalusians to me.
