    Quote:Ameraucanas only come from privite breeders, EE's come from hatcheries.
    EE's were originally bred from auracanas by crossing them with other breeds.
    Ameraucanas were originally bred from the early EE's. Nowadays EE's are bred from crossing Ameraucanas with other breeds.

    Generally speaking.. Ameraucanas come in only a few colors and have blue legs where as EE's have green legs (usually) and come in a large variety of colors

    ok I keep calling him my EE boy, but people confused me saying he is Ameraucana he does have blue color legs to me, but in the picture i guess they look kind of greenish.
    But they are like suit color like ash almost very greyish blue I didnt get him from a hatchery but I don't know where the original owner got him from.
    He was given to me cause someone in the city couldn't have roosters.
