I don't think you're suppose to lik 10 dollars. Those things are filthy.
Now I know how robo feels getting ignored. Better than being thrown in front of a bus though.
I think everyone has headed out of doors to soak up that gorgeous sunshine!
There's a pretty good thread here on BYC called Growing Fodder - a quick search should bring it up. I'd link to it, but I'm in the kitchen baking and cleaning.
Ok, ok: Aww, poor Chickenrunner. Feel better? Lol
Ok, I know I've been told by someone on here that these girls are Easter Eggers. I was told by the feed store that they were Araucanas. Looking at pictures, I think they are Ameraucanas. The girl in the front, Cinnamon lays green eggs, and has a tail. The girl in the back, Sugar lays pink eggs, and has a tail. Does anyone know what breed these sweet ladies are?
They are Easter Eggers -a catch-all term for a type, rather than breed, of chicken that carries the blue-eff-laying gene and can lay greenish to bluish eggs. Ameraucanas were originally a mixed breed developed using the english import Araucanas (rumpless), but they have standardized now and are a try breed with few "officially accepted" colors. The large hatcheries still use all three breed names interchangeably, hence the confusion. An Easter Egger from a hatchery is likely a high- content Ameraucana mix. Ameraucanas also lay only blue eggs. Based on the fact that your girls are not an accepted color of Ameraucana (too dark to be wheaten) and that they lay green eggs, they are very pretty Easter Eggers. I'll look up my favorite article on the subject -give me a minute.
Those are Easter Eggers. Ameracuana chickens have slate legs. Also they only lay blue eggs. Araucana chickens are rumpless and only lay blue eggs.
Found it ! Please excuse typos in that last post -I'm on my phone :/
