So here's the story: About 5 weeks ago I bought an 'Ameracauna Pullet' from another user here on BYC. Now I don't think this person had any bad intentions by any means,but let me tell you,if I'd known I wouldn't be getting exactly what I was paying for,I wouldn't have bought. At the time I wasn't entirely sure what Ameracaunas looked like as chicks,I didn't know they weren't dark or 'masked'. I paid $5.00 to get the tiny chick out of a box 2 times smaller than my own brooder. It held 10 times the chicks within it's tiny space,with the woman pulling out a dead one right in front of me! After research and asking,I found I'd actually been sold a Silver Laced Wyandotte. A far cry from an Ameracauna,yes,and more than likely a roo at that. I know at the time that I'd bought the chick for 2 reasons: 1. I thought it was an Ameracauna pullet 2. To get it out of that tiny space where other chicks were dying These days the almost 4 weeks old the chick is healthy and happy,albeit loud,yet loving. My little Peanut,who's never looking back from where he came from. We live and we learn,we wise up and avoid more mistakes. Sometimes that soft spot to help someone or something will get you though,so beware!
