    I apologize if I am not supposed to post this or if it's already on here some where I am still learning my way around. I obviously have so much to learn! I have chickens for eggs but want to get into the breeding end of things and am trying to do my research and wow....I didn't know there is so much to know!

    EEs - Easter Eggers. A crossbred chicken commonly sold under the false claim as an Ameraucana.

    WBW Ameraucanas - Wheaten and Blue Wheaten Ameraucanas. Here's a blue wheaten pullet.

    B/B/S Ameraucanas - Blue, Black, Splash Ameraucanas. It defines the fact that crossing a blue to a blue can create three colors - Blue, black,and splash. [​IMG] Here's black and blue cockerels.

    Quote:Hatchery stock means it is an Easter Egger. Sorry, but none of yours are Ameraucanas then. . . They're still great birds, just not purebred. [​IMG]
