I am aware Ameraucanas have both a beard and muffs. That is why I asked.

That makes complete since to me! Gives me something to breed toward too... see what i can do! I noticed it was more clean faced... i looked for a beards and muffs all along, just never started seeing anything yet... we will see where this project takes me!

I agree that the bird in question is clean faced and that makes it an Easter Egger rather than a true Ameraucana. The standards for true Ameraucanas are among the toughest of any breed and include beards and muffs (http://www.ameraucana.org/standard.html) and the Ameraucana Breeders Club considers any bird that fails to meet all of those standards to be an Easter Egger rather than a true Ameraucana.
