Ralphie, yes Ed is the one that I got in Carlton. The lady said the chick was an Ameraucana pullet. She had a Hmong gentleman come and sex several dozen chicks, and of the 10 chicks I bought 8 were pullets. The ones that were supposed to be Ameraucanas are in fact EE. They have the muffs and beards and body type is ok, but the colors are not recognized color varieties as per the "Standard Of Perfection". Really it makes no difference unless one is into showing or raising birds to the SOP. In my opinion there is no such thing as purebred chickens. On a different note, Lena, Inga, Elke and Tilly my Partridge Chantecler pullets all seem to be madder than wet hens! They apparently are not happy that Ole is gone. I have assured them that he is not going to a stew pot and mentioned that I had kept Sven for them. Sven is Ole's big brother. It seems that they are quite upset, and it may be a cold day in Helsinki before I get any more eggs from them, but wait isn't it winter in Helsinki as we speak?
