So far all of your Easter Eggers look like pullets, still early though.

Currently have:

LF:,buff laced brahma , gold laced brahma , light brahma,, ,bearded white polish, leghorn

Bantam: WC polish, silver polish, bearded white polish, partridge silkies, red pyle phoenix, red/buff cochin, brown red modern game, splash and white silkies

In the bator:  Some of everything

I was sold these chicks as purebred Ameriacanias. How do you tell the difference between EE and ameriacania?

Just go ahead and Google the differences, and I'm sorry to say that they do not look like amerecaunas. 99% of the time the breeder either thinks they have amerecaunas, or they know they don't have them but take advantage of it, either way most people end up with EE's not amerecaunas.
I was lucky to get my amerecauna girl from a reputable breeder who is well known for her amerecaunas, and I did research to make sure I was not getting scammed (with or without the breeder knowing).
Here's one website you could use, but there's a lot of them since most people think they get amerecaunas but end up with EE's.
