    Looks just like one of my hatchery EE's that lays GREEN eggs too. [​IMG]

    They sure are commanding a price though. I'd say Buyer Beware.

    It doesn't suprise me. I find people selling ''true ameraucanas" that are really EE's all the time on this site, and there is tons of info available.

    I saw that and I e-mailed one of the bidders to ask why they would pay so much for two cockerels............

    The seller is going to give a laying hen if both are cockerels. I''m beginning to think the Araucana and Ameraucana breeders are fighting a loosing battle. I've been trying to educate people for over 40 years. Hasn't done much good.​

    I'm going to add some of my cull cockerels now to see if I can get the same price......

    And mine carry the blue egg gene.
