    We went to go get chickies to add to our group of hens and we wanted to get particular breeds- Delaware, Barred Rock, & Ameraucana. Farm Supply was sold out of Ameraucanas when we got there :( So I thought that we would get a Delaware and two Barred Rocks. I looked at the BRs and saw one without white spots and brown on it instead. Well, I HAD TO get it, just to chance it, and the lady said that it could be an Ameraucana. Now I'm not really a chicken person, so if anyone else is- I would love your opinion! Barred Rock or Ameraucana? (she's the one on the right, Barred Rock on the left for comparison) :think:

    With the red of the heatlamp, it is hard to tell.

    Looks just like the "Ameraucana" that Farm Supply sells around here.
