    It's actually not false advertising... nor can the Ameraucana Club lobby them to stop using the name...

    Reasons for this includes the fact that the state the different colored eggs their Am's lay and the name has something to do with what was going on during the time of APA acceptance... think it was something like that the hatchies/feed stores started using the name before the actual date Am's were accepted...

    Good person to ask questions is jerryse... he is 1 of the original 3 breeders involved in their acceptance to the APA... he's very nice, btw, and doesn't get offended or upset easily... even after 40 years, he's still breeding too... in fact, I have a black split pullet from his line I'm growing out... gorgeous bird...

    I told you I had issues. At least I didn't do it to you out here. I would have let it go, but the word was temperamental, and you use it A LOT [​IMG]

    Apparently none of this matters any more. Don told me to eat these, too [​IMG]

    He didn't quite go that far, but he is a man of few words. If you ask his opinion, he will give it to you bluntly, and I value his opinion. He said the purple sheen should be culled, and the bird I posted pics of has a lot of purple

    I'm curious. SC, your Ameraucanas look just like my "EE" except yours are dark. And my EE has slate green/blue legs. I'll post a pic and you can tell me your opinion. I'd rather she was an Ameraucana.

    The "EE" in the second pic is Ruby. I'll try to find a better pic. The first pic is her daughter, whose father was a white silkie. I only posted her pic to show Ruby's color close up because they are the same color. Ruby has puffy cheeks, slate blue/green legs, red comb and tail feathers. Opinions?
