    Thanks for your help! The second chick hatched from a green egg- not a clue on the true Ameracauna question. The egg color means that the mother was an Ameracauna though, correct?

    Green eggs mean an Easter Egger. True Ameraucanas only lay blue eggs and only come in certain color varieties. EEs can be any color or pattern, and lay blue, green brown or even pinkish eggs. If one parent was a true Ameraucana then this chick would lay green eggs if it is a pullet. Since one or both parents are EEs you will have to wait and see if it will lay eggs, and what color. Though it does have a pea comb so there is a good chance it will be a blue or green layer if it is female. The pea comb and blue egg gene are closely linked.

    These are my buff orpingtons from TSC. They were in the straight run bin. They are (supposedly!!) 12-13 days old today. These pics are from today. What do you think? Roos or pullets? I know it's way too early to know for sure, but I'm dying to know if I managed to get any pullets at all! Thanks! :)
