I think I was mistaken...Americauna not Araucana?

    I bought this pullet at the local feed store and they were all labeled Araucaunas. Is she really an Americauna?

    She is what is called a Easter egger. Which means she is not a pure Ameracauna, you will still get the colored eggs. [​IMG]

    She's actually a very pretty Easter Egger,

    Feed stores don't sell Ameraucanas or Araucanas, but that's how they label them.

    Hmm good to know.

    She is a pretty standoffish girl, and she's also an escape artist. Until her face started turning red, I thought she looked like a hawk.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me!
