We bought our flock April 30. We bought what we thought 6 pullets, females correct? Well we've just found out we've got a a rooster and I'd like to make sure he is the only one. So what are these?? They were marked Amereacaunas at the store we purchased them but the Rooster we have was also marked the same and we've found out he is an EE Cockerel.

fyi 'Henny Penny' is freakishly & awkwardly awesome.  Any idea of the parent breeds?


They are supposed to be Ameracaunas, we bought them from this place called Rural Kings that sells baby chicks. I know nothing of their history. Unfortunately.

Easter egger pullet.

Her parents were Easter Eggers, as were their parents. Most hatcheries have been breeding EE flocks since the late '70s. They may infuse with Leghorn or other production blood from time to time, but there are no "parent breeds" with EE, just breeding them to each other for generations and generations.
