    IMG_5583.JPG IMG_5579.JPG About a month ago I purchased a group of pullets from my local TSC, some were labeled as amauracanas, and while most exhibit similar traits (feather beards, similar colors, etc.) one of them (whom I have dubbed Gouda) looks much different and I was wondering if it was possible it was a different breed? She has gray partridge-ish feathers and no beard.

    She could be an Easter Egger, but looks like a Sapphire Gem sexlink.

    She looks like an Easter Egger. They're not all bearded, I have one that's not.

    yep, just an ee. And if you got your other ameraucana from the same bin, the likelihood is that they're also ee and not ameraucana.
