    Those aren't Ameraucana crosses. . . They're BO x Easter Eggers. (EE's are mutts [​IMG] ) The only Ameraucana who could produce offspring close to that are Wheatens.

    I was told some of these chicks were pure BO. How do i tell the BO's from the mixes. The only way i know is the color of the legs. My two EE's have slate legs, some of the others have a slate tinted yellow, and the rest have bright yellow legs. Thanks! i am learning so much!

    Not sure about your chickens but I saw "owned by a basset hound"......I've been owned by three. Basset Hounds are great. (Sorry about going off topic but, well, it was basset hounds!!!) [​IMG]
