    Howdy!
    So there was a thread on here somewhere where a few people posted pix of their EE's that were a mix of Barred Rock hens with Ameraucana Roosters. I have been searching through all the threads and can't find the one post I'm looking for, in it a couple people posted really good pix of the eggs! But I would love to see pictures of people's crosses, preferably just BR hens mixed with Am roos but any barred rock/ameraucana mix would be awesome!
    I am breeding my Barred Rock hens with my Blue Ameraucana Rooster and would love to see pix of eggs people have gotten from this mix. I only have chicks so I haven't had the pleasure of seeing what their eggs look like! :)
    Here's a few pix of my EE chicks from this mix:

    and the only black ones without white dots on their heads so I believe both are pullets

    I hatched 2 on 8/2/17. They are from a blue/gold Ameracauna hen x Barred rock. I am pretty sure one is a Rooster and one a pullet. 1st chick I think is the Roo. there are 4 pictures of each so far. I know they will change more as they grow.

    Awesome!!! She really does look like a barred hen, save for the face! I was actually surprised I got 2 little blues. That light anyway. I'll wait for awhile and let them grown some now and take more pictures in a few weeks to see how they have changed.

    That's a pretty hen! What color would you call her? She seems to have some blue feathers on the rear end. :) She looks brownish to me in the picture. Pretty amazing what these EE mixes throw. :)

    I took a few update pictures of my 2 blue EE babies. One is a light barred cockerel and the other a silvery blue pullet. they are now 6 weeks old . Next spring, I may try my 2 Barred hens with one of the EE Roos I kept from this year. It won't be this young fella, but I kept 2 from the older hatch. one is a deep red and one orange color
