    Looks like an EE to me too. Sure is a beauty. I love the coloring.
    Just a friendly note. There is no i in Amercaunas. A lot of people miss spell it.

    Thanks.... how can you tell the difference between Amercauna and EE

    I know that Araucanas are rumpless.. These Amercaunas have beards and ear tuffs and 3 of them have green feet....

    Please educate me......

    A lot of hatcheries and individuals sell "Easter Eggers" (EE's) as Ameraucanas. And it is frequently misspelled. [​IMG]

    This is a link to the Ameraucana Breeders Club. It might make it more clear in terms of defining the breed.

    http://www.ameraucana.org/

    There are many members of BYC who are far more knowledgeable about Ameraucanas than I.
    I suspect you have EE's, which are pretty, good natured and productive egg layers.
