    The white one looks like a Leghorn. Not sure about the other one. [​IMG]

    EE stands for Easter Egger. They are chicken that lays colored eggs, such as blue, green and brown. They are sold as Americanas/Araucanas/Ameraucanas at hatcheries, but they are really just mixes that carry the colored egg gene. Ameraucanas and Araucanas are two totally different breeds.

    Quote:Yay for truth in advertising! Good for them! This is part of what they say on their Easter Egger page:

    Other hatcheries (misleadingly) sell these as "Ameraucanas," "Americanas" or sometimes "Araucanas," however, only breeders can provide true Ameraucanas or Araucanas at this time.

    It's about time. I think that Easter Eggers are wonderful for the backyard laying flock (one of my first chickens was a McMurray Easter Egger, and we loved her!) but people have a right to know that the breed they want is exactly what they are getting--and they have a right to know the difference between the breeds. The way My Pet Chicken is advertising these guys is correct and informative. I like that!​
