I got these two girls from a friend's sister, who said they were Ameracaunas. I don't know if she bought them or bred them, since my friend picked them up for me and I never had an opportunity to speak with the sister. She said they are both laying and lay blue eggs. #1 seems to have all the markings of a silver Ameracauna, but has little mini-wattles and no muff. #2 is blue and red and has a muff, but doesn't seem to conform to any color standard for Ameraucanas. Since many hatcheries sell EEs as Ameraucanas, I'm assuming I have mutt chickens that lay blue eggs. Also how can I tell if they've started laying, since they don't have any wattles or combs to speak of? Or is #1 still pre-point-of-lay, since she has wattles but they're small? I'm used to my brown egg-layers with big red combs and wattles! I'll try to get better pics tomorrow.
