    A few weeks ago I go suckered into picking up two 4 month old Ameraucanas ...so the guy said at the flee market.

    I wanted 2 more egg layers for the winter and like my flock ot have a lot of variety. As I bought them I was thinking that these two are probably EE and more like 3 months old. No matter I still wanted them.

    So for you experts out there...

    Ameraucanas or EE? [​IMG]

    Definitely NOT Ameraucanas, but beautiful nevertheless. I also think the (very pretty:drool ) is either a speckled sussex or speckled something cross [​IMG] I would kill for such a pretty bird, well not really but you get the point! [​IMG] Nice find!

    Definitely not Ameraucanas but certainly interesting looking birds.

    For pictures of the 8 approved/recognized Ameraucana varieties, please see: www.ameraucana.org for the APA SOP.

    God Bless,

    Sweet!

    Speckled sussex that was a surprise.

    I was pretty sure I did not have any Ameraucanas.

    Now all 6 of my chickens are different breeds and mutts. [​IMG]

    I post again when they get older and see what everyone still thinks.

    Ohh I forgot to ask, All girls? No roos? Right? [​IMG]
