    I bought 6 pullet chicks at our local feed store. 3 so called Ameracaunas and 3 Buff Orpingtons. They are 6 weeks old now:

    This Americauna looks so much different than the other two. What is she?

    Those aren't Ameraucanas, they are Easter Eggers. They come in every color and many lovely patterns.

    What you get at hatcheries or feed stores are not going to be true Ameraucanas but are more properly called Easter Eggers or EE’s. Hopefully they will lay blue or green eggs for you.

    Those EE’s are a mix of different colors or patterns. When you cross mixes like that you can get a wide variety of different colors and patterns. I think you will be quite pleased when they get their adult plumage, but don’t expect them to be purebreds.

    Yes she is beardless. I thinks she is beautiful. Easter Eggers, I suppose that fits because they all look different...lol

    Thanks
