Thanks Rhea, that was helpful.

So basically the Black Golden is an eb (partridge) base? We have several of those ginger/partridge looking hens running around. Haven't been selecting for that colour, but they seem to persist when I do my egg colour selections.

Found the Brown Red pullet photos confusing, they seem to take the brown name literally. Always considered the brown red pullet to be a black bird with red hackle and neck lacing.

Danny you must have some hybrid cross.
Sure would like to see photos of them though.

The vast majority of the so called Ameraucanas sold via eggbid and hatcheries simply aren't the real McCoy. They are Easter Eggers.
Even many private breeders who claim they have Ameraucanas don't.
If anybody is serious about learning more about Ameraucanas you get get information at the Ameraucanas Breeders Club webite:
http://www.ameraucana.org/
Or ABC Sharing Place:
http://groups.msn.com/ABCShareingPlace/yourwebpage1.msnw
Both websites have forums, photos and helpful information.

Hi Danny...
Just because the person said he's a member of the ABC doesn't mean he has real Ameraucanas.
Alot of people think they have Ameraucanas but they really have Easter Eggers and I think this is mainly due to a lack of education on the breed. Many hatcheries sell Easter Eggers but call them Ameraucanas and sell them to unsuspecting (uneducated on the breed) buyers. Unfortunately this is very common. But the ABC ahas been trying to change this through education of the breed.

Here is an article geared towards beginners that might help you determine what you have.
It describes the 8 standard colors and the breed traits to look for.
You will find a list of Ameraucana breeders on the websites I provided above.
http://groups.msn.com/ABCShareingPlace/ameraucanamythsandfacts.msnw

But hey, there is nothing wrong with raising and selling Easter Eggers...just don't pass them off as Ameraucanas.
Good luck and keep us posted. smile
