Your birds are all mixed. I can see how there could be pure Ameraucana in the line fairly recently, but they've been out crossed to something else to get the yellow legs and not-quite-right body types. Your hens are quite pretty, though, and with the pea combs should be nice colored egg layers. The last bird pictured is also a rooster, more a typical EE pattern instead of Ameraucana looking.

Thank you all for your input. I have one more rooster I'd like your opinions on. He was purchased on his own. I was told he was pure bred americauna.

This color is gold duckwing. It's not one of the recognized colors for an Ameraucana, so I'm going Easter egger on this guy also. it's a beautiful color and he could make you some pretty chicks.

I agree; Easter Egger.
