    I keep reading about Araucanas and I'm guessing that I don't have one. It seems like we were sold an EE or something, right? I guess I don't really care what she is, she's beautiful! But if anyone knows her breed, let me know!

    I had a chick just like that and was sold to me as a Black Copper Maran. It turned out to be a Speckled Sussex lol. It looked exactly like that one. Chicks are like a box of choclates, ya never know what your gonna git

    If she has a beard she's an EE or Ameraucana, depending on where you got her/him.

    Looks a lot like my EE, can't see how puffy her cheeks are or if she has a beard?

    Actually, her feet are grey. I guess her cheeks are puffy? Here's another pic:
