    These guys were bought from a lady needing some extra cash. She claimed they were SQ americauna, they lay little sky blue eggs. But I've just been calling them Easter Eggers. They just roam the yard and roost on the dog lot at night. I don't put them up with my others because they aren't tame enough. There a rooster and two hens. Hens both look the same. What are they?

    I caught them to see, and I'll be leaving them in a ground pen.

    They look like they could be wheaton Ameraucanas. I'm not very familiar with that coloration but they look like some pics I've seen. What color are their legs?

    Hmm, I guess I should put them in the coop then. [​IMG]


    I don't particularly like them. They don't run up to me and try to be my bud like my polish do. I'll put them in the coop though, don't want them to get eaten. I was actually thinking of selling them, but have no idea of their worth.

    The unfriendly behavior is simply from them being new. I would say they're worth the same any other bantam is, possibly a little more. They're not top quality from the looks of the photos, but they are indeed less common than other bantams.
