    Help I cannot find what breed these are. If they stand tall they are over knee high in height.

    I have two of these roosters. They are very large birds!!!

    Thanks for any help.

    Quote:An Easter Egger. If a hen it would lay blue or green eggs.
    Also sometimes referred to as Ameracuana, however Ameracuanas are different than EE.

    Yes...and Easter Egger is a cross breed between one breed and an Ameracauna or Araucana. Ameracauna and Aracauna are a recognized pure breed. EE's are mixed with either of these breeds...the hatcheries often sell EE's as Ameracaunas or Aracaunas.
    I have one now who I thought was an aracauna but found out he is an EE, which is fine with me...kind of wish he was a girl..wanted colored eggs!!! But I love him anyway....

    Your boys are absolutely gorgeous no matter what they are!!!

    do they get along??
