I'm not sure what I was expecting, but when I pictured our two Ameraucana chicks growing out their first feathers, this colouring wasn't what I had in mind. The colouring of the other, is more white on black. They're our new yin and yang chicks. They're colouring is rather unique, especially amongst a sea of partridge chanteclers. I'm just hoping they really are Ameraucana and will be doubly pleased if they turn out to be the egg laying variety and not of the kind that likes to crow all the live long day because one of those around here is plenty.
