    I am a newly baptized chicken owner. I purchased five three day old chicks from My Pet Chicken each a different breed. They are now 15 week old (pullets). All of our girls look like the breed pictures from this web sight with the exception of Ester the Easter Egger. After reading about this breed and her two look a like breeds (Ameraucanas and Araucanas) I am wondering what her actual breed is. Can anyone help me out.

    [​IMG] I really appreciate the input. As I said, I am a newly baptized chicken owner. Presently, I own the following breeds (one each): Australorp, Buff Orpington, Easter Egger, Rhode Island Red, and a Plymouth Barred Rock all of which are now 16 weeks old. I have also just ordered through My Pet Chicken seven more chicks that will arrive on or about 28 July. Their breeds are Buff Chantecler, Delaware, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Speckled Sussex, White Plymouth Rock, Silver Cuckoo Maran, and a Welsummer. I will be placing them in a 4 x 6 chicken coop that I ordered from Horizon Structures that suposed to hold 12 to 15 chickens. From the temperment of all the chickens, I believe that they will all become friendly once the pecking order is sorted out. I do not intend to buy anymore chickens, 12 is my limit. Nor do I intend to use my chickens for anything but laying. My wife has already named our first five and has a new list for the newly reporting chicks. If anyone has any recommendation I would be glad to hear them! Once again, thanks for your inputs![​IMG]

    EE's are actually a mix of breeds, that's why she doesn't look like the pictures on MPC's website. I think they are some of the most fun chicks to raise - you never know how they'll turn out! [​IMG]
