    I found a home for my white leghorn rooster this morning and bought this Ameraucana pullet from a local farmer who breeds them.

    If someone knows if this is not a pure breed then let me know. It looks like she might have the beard in the picture, but I haven't been able to get a good enough look at her face yet.

    She is just gorgeous and I really want another one! And I know my husband will just...[​IMG]
    He doesn't see the purpose of having chickens.

    Brown/Red is a listed color. But if she is just an easter egger I'm ok with that.

    Definately EE...they are all beautiful!

    I had one bantam who is from a stock of purebred Amercuana bantams from one of the reknown breeder and she was a cross by a Buff Amercuana and Blue Wheaton mom. She was lovely! They dont have her color as acceptable under the Amercuana standards but thats ok with me. She was a lovely eye candy!
