    I got this chick at the local grange with two other Ameraucana chicks. She is obviously not an Ameraucana. Any ideas what it might be? It's the sweetest chick I've ever had :)

    It looks like it could be an Easter Egger. And even though it is a bit too young to tell, it may also be a "he". But that is just a reaction to the coloring pattern and I could be wrong. It would be great to see some photos in a few weeks as the bird matures.

    Unfortunately I've been thinking it might be a boy too [​IMG] Do Roos hold their tails high? This one has a pretty tall tail. It's very quiet and very attached to me. It comes running when it sees me and flies up to my head. It flies very well. Thanks!
