    Here is my day old baby - I'm thinking Amerecauna X, but wanted some more expert opinions.
    Are there other breeds that have the "chipmunk" stripes?

    They were very pink when he hatched - now they are turning darker. Here is a better picture: but you can't see his stripes [​IMG]

    His egg was greenish and of the breeds listed as possible the only ones that made sense were
    Silver Amerecauna X brown/red hens &wellsummers in one pen

    Brown/Red Amerecauna X with blue/blue wheaten/ buff hens

    There was a disclaimer saying if she didn't have certain breeds that others might be included but she sent twice as many eggs so I'm guessing that wasn't an issue...

    I guess only time will tell:D
