    My husband got me 2 "Ameraucana " chicks. One looks very different from any pictures I have seen. Can anyone tell me the breed and gender of this one? It has tufts on its face and gray legs.

    The one in the picture (black and white one) is an Easter Egger cockerel (Easter Eggers aren't really a breed but a mix that lays blue or green eggs).

    Thank you. That's what I was wondering. It's such a pretty chicken, I was hoping it would have been a hen.
