i bought this girl at the auction yersterday
what is it ?
Easter Egger-it has a tail & a large build. Lovely looking bird though.
Looks like an EE to me... and a lovely one at that.
Congrats on your new girl!
Technically, an Easter Egger IS an AmerIcana, if it's spelled like that. She seems to have the wrong color legs for an Ameraucana; they aren't slate, at least the way the pic looks. Does she have a single comb? If so, definite Easter Egger.
they are slate but like dried out ?
its not a single comb its thin with no points on them just a round piece at the tip if you get what i am trying to say lol
Does it have a V comb, something like this? If so it is definitely an EE, but what a beautiful bird, especially to have been crossed with such a different breed! (Ameraucana's have Pea combs.)
(My Crevecour and Polish from an auction)
No it doesnt have a V comb
i have a book of chickens and i was looking at a pic of an araucana and my bird has the same comb
but i know its not an araucana just the same comb type .
Quote:It definitely is not an Araucana, Araucana are clean faced(always), rumpless(preferred), and tufted(also preferred). Mine a quite a bit smaller than my Ameraucana also.
countyroad1330- I have NEVER seen a EE with a V-comb. Most EE are pea combed, which I believe is the correlation of the blue egg gene.
Pretty EE you have there
Ask pips&peeps......Jean a.k.a Ameracauna Police! LOL
It looks like a blue ameraucana, but the legs are throwing me off. It may be an easter egger bred up to look like a blue ameraucana or someone bred an easter egger to a blue ameraucana.
Better pictures of the comb and legs would be helpful. The eyes look a little light too, they are supposed to be bay.
