Can anyone tell me what they think the breed and sex is?
It does look like an Ameraucana. And female.
Looks ameracauna, I have 3 that look similar
Yes I have more kinda the same I'll post.
Eater egger or olive egger.Her legs are gray,I think Ameraucanas have yellow legs but don't quote me on that.
Ameraucana only have black/slate colored legs. EEs usually will green colored legs but can come in any color.
Yeah legs are darker grey and even the comb is darker in color.
Sorry that was for the first chicken that is black.
Which ones have the yellow legs?Someone told me the actual Ameraucanas had yellow legs and the EE and OE had gray colored legs.Just curious,I like to get my facts right....
Ameraucanas lay blue eggs. Other traits include a pea comb, white skin, full tails, muffs and beards (always together), and slate or black legs; they have no ear tufts. The APA recognizes these colors: Black, Blue, Blue Wheaten, Brown Red, Sliver, Wheaten and White.
The characteristics to meet the APA Standard for a true Ameraucana are as follows;
Must be a blue egg layer. The shade of blue can vary, but it must be blue.
Must have ‘pea’ combs; A small, plump red comb towards the front of head.
Must be bearded and muffed. They appear to have a beard of feathers.
Cannot have ear tufts.
Must have slate blue legs. Although the black variety sometimes have black legs.
Males must have red ear lobes.
There are 8 accepted feather colours; Black, Blue, Blue Wheaten, Brown Red, Buff, Silver, Wheaten, White.
I'm new to all this but I think Easter Eggers are not a true breed so the legs can be any color.
Yup I agree Nm156
I think EEs are anything that resembles an Ameraucana but isn't.
Ee's can have any leg color, and some will lay regular color eggs, not all ee's lay blue or green eggs (unless you breed certain breeds with blue and green genes) . Then there are olive eggers, they can look like anything and have any color legs and lay different shades of olive eggs
Ok,I got my Ameraucanas from McMurray.Did I get actual Ameraucanas or EE's or OE's?All I get anymore are green eggs,including green eggs from their mixed offspring except one and she lays brown eggs.I love their fuzzy faces and colored eggs.
Yup I love em too between Americana and EE I've got over 10 lol lets say
Hatchery EEs have some Ameraucana and some Araucana blood in them,but they also have production blood in them.If it says it can lay brown , blue ,pink or green eggs it is an Easter Egger.
Ameracaunas lay blue eggs. To really get a true one go to a breeder not a hatchery. Hatcheries sell ee's and maybe olive eggers. I've never seen an olive egger at a hatchery but I don't look for them. But ee's are a favorite of hatcheries.
