    we purchased this chick from Cal Ranch and happily paid extra for what was signed as an Aracauna. After reading up on my new treasure, I realized this chick is not rumpless and must be a different breed. We love our little Cleo but want to know what she is. EE OR Black sexlink maybe? Thanks!

    Not a black sex link, since she is not black. Most likely an EE.

    Thanks when I showed Cal Ranch employee he said it was a Black sexlink. But I couldn't find a picture that looked like her.

    Black sex links hatch out black. The hens stay black with some red. Males are barred like their mother with maybe a little red on their shoulders.

    That is a brown americauna by the looks of things! I would know, I breed them! it is very easy to mix up chicken breeds when they are chicks, but i would still email the farm and tell them they gave you the WRONG breed for future reference...

    If the chick came from a hatchery, chances are not good for it to be an Ameraucana.

    And Ameraucana is NOT spelled with an I.

    Some hatcheries do, performance poultry does, i'm not sure about the one you ordered from though... a misshape maybe? And My apologize for my error in spelling "Americana" Instead of Amaraucana. I'm going to have to blame that on spell check...
