    About eight weeks ago we bought a bunch of baby chicks, and what we assume were either easter eggers or americaunas but they look very different than what we thought those birds looked like. Its mainly the yellow feet and how dark they got.

    They can't be Ameraucanas, because Ameraucanas MUST have slate colored legs and muffs and a beard. These birds have no muffs or beards and yellow legs. Also you can ONLY buy Ameraucanas (at least true Ameraucanas) from a breeder.

    They look like Rhode Island Reds, the two in the front look like cockerels. Could you get a better picture of the one walking away?
