Was sold pure bred lav araucana eggs, and one chick (17 days old) is starting to grow pinkish coloured feathers at the base of it's neck. The other two: one is almost totally white and the other is a gorgeous lavender, really deeply coloured. The pinkish one has dark legs and black skin, so am really confused. Could this be an EE? As far as I understand an EE is an araucana cross. Hope not, as I only have the three, can buy in a roo if I need one (not sexed yet) but will find it very hard to find more pullets, and do not want to mess up a basic trio with buff eathering throwbacks. Argh, I'll take pics tomorrow and post on the bred/gender board, I think.
