    I bought this a couple of weeks ago as an Ameraucana chick, I don't know enough to know if it's an ameraucana or EE. I've heard a lot that people often buy EEs as Ameraucanas. But anyway "he"s always been a little bigger than the others. And a lot less inclined to be held. Now today I notice this nice little comb showing and some very slight red on his face. The other EE/Ameraucana chick has nothing in regards to a comb yet. I assume Aurora is going to be a Rory? Oh he's about 7 weeks now.


    don't really have any other non-blurry. If needed let me know and I can provide some pics of him/her around 3-4 weeks old although they're blurry.

    He is adorable isn't he?

    What about breed? Is he Ameracana or EE ... how can you tell the difference?

    If I had to guess, I'd say a cross between an Aurucana/Americana and a RIR.

    And yeah, it looks like a roo to me.

    I have 3 Ameracauna/EE's all the same age or so as yours. I have the same question as you about breed, but none of mine have combs or tail feathers like yours. Definitely looks like a Rory to me...

    But he's beautiful.

    One of mine is white/light buff (I just posted pic of it, but the other two are darker.) I love the color of yours!

    Looks like a Rory and a EE he doesnt have the face tufts that a Ameracuana does.
