    They are a red sex link, so yes, that is a general idea of what they should look like at maturity though the balance of red and white can vary from one bird to the next.

    Tetras come from a 40 yr. Old company in Europe. They have an information website called Tetra Americana. It includes management sheets on each variety. They are a purpose bred breed , not just mutt chickens. There is a US company selling their birds here. I don't know if they are importing or hatching eggs or

    Whether they got a foundation flock from tetra and are breeding their own tetras here in the US. Anyway, nice to know this breed is purpose bred with a long history,. Not just any old mutt chickens. Best, Karen P.s. yes, it is americana not ameraucana. Because they sound the same, I think sometimes buyers and sellers get confused.

    I just bought a few from TSC today. I'll try to keep posted on how well they do for me. Put me in mind of golden comet chicks right. Seem really light colored.

    I got one from TSC a week ago and when I started to pick up a golden comet chick today that was exactly my thought. I ended up not going with the comet. I'm loving my Tetra girl though she's adorable and very friendly!

    Yes, I actually researched it a bit when before buying it by checking out info on the site and on BYC. Americana is the correct spelling.
