Ameraucana Chickens have pea combs, which are small rows of red fleshy growths on the top of the head. They also have “ear muffs” which are puffed out feathers on the side of the head. Its legs are a grayish blue, and on birds with darker feathers the leg skin tends to be darker as well. Unlike the Araucana, which are “rumpless”, the Ameraucana chickens have tail feathers. They come in many color combinations, including black, blue, red brown, buff, silver, white, wheaten and blue wheaten. Though another coloration known as “lavender” is quite popular, it is not officially recognized by the breed standard.
