    These are supposed to be Ameraucana's but since I got them at a local store who gets their chicks from a hatchery in New Mexico I'm really not sure which they are. I have 4 of them and they all look them same and they're all supposed to be pullets.

    It's a little EE. Ameraucanas have slate colored legs, not green or yellow legs like EEs.

    It's an EE. Hatcheries don't sell pure Ameraucanas.

    Thanks. I've been wondering if they were true Ameraucana's or not. Doesn't bother me that they are not. I got some true Ameraucana's today from a small breeder.

    What does EE stand for? Tried Googling it and didn't come up the answer.
