    The top one is an Ameraucana. The bottom one looks like a Dark Brown Leghorn.

    Isn't an Easter Egger just an Ameracauna that's not pure bred? That's what I thought, anyway!

    Ok thanks.. I see where easter egger is in this classification.. That is what some others have been telling me. She is very wild.. She runs wild everywhere. Hard to get a good picture of her.

    Yes I guess you are right.. After going to the website I realized that was the case. So I deleted that post. I know nothing about chickens. Don't even like eggs. But hubby does.

    We just never seen a chicken like this.. before

    An Easter Egger is a mix of a Blue Egg breed, either Ameraucana or Araucana. EEs are mutts, and you get EEs from hatcheries, no matter what they say.

    That hen's an EE and the roo looks like a Brown Leghorn. Although this has already been stated. [​IMG]

    Yeah we got our chickens from a feed store. All were suppose to be females but got a Rooster out of the bunch. He is pretty though.. So I guess we will keep him


    So what I thought was a rare chicken is just a mutt... That is sad. She is the prettest on of the bunch..
