This is a bad picture of her as I thought she was going to die this past week, so I grabbed a parting shot (she looked very ill one afternoon and was hiding in the nesting boxes, but then snapped out of it by the next morning and is now back to normal)- but I wanted to ask has anyone else come across such poor feather quality and weird coloring in a bird being passed off as an Ameraucana? And if so, did the chicken live to be a fully mature adult? Maybe she is not an Ameraucana, but a mix of that and something else? That's "Nancy Grace" on the left (she's stark raving and makes a lot of noise and big to-dos out of nothing) and Gert on the right, in case you weren't sure which was which! Gert is super sweet and very tame, but also at the bottom of the flock-- hence her missing tail feathers. You can't tell here, but some of the darker feathers are blueish. I love her to pieces, but am worried her poor genetics might result in a premature death, her comb is not red like her peers (refer to looney).
