Easter Eggers are mixed breeds, they can have nay comb type, any color type, really any anything :). Araucanas on the other hand are an actually breed, they have no tails, also tufts coming out of there "ears" as well as puffy cheeks, pea combs,  and you can read more on them in the Breeds sections :)

Unless you're outside of the US. They have different breed standards in other countries. The Ameracaunas I've seen posted from Australia look exactly like the bird pictured (though I don't think they have single combs).

She would technically be an Easter Egger since she doesn't meet the standard for UK/Australian Araucana. I've heard that true Araucana in Australia are really hard to come by, with most of the birds being sold as such being mixed breeds.
