Easter Eggers can lay just about any color egg. You never know for sure what color a pullet will lay until she actually starts laying, that's why they are called Easter Eggers. Most birds sold as Ameraucana are actually Easter Eggers. Most hatcheries sell Easter Eggers as Ameraucana.

The easiest way to tell if you are getting Easter Eggers or Ameraucana is color. Ameraucana always have a color/variety specified, just like any other purebred breed. If no color/variety is specified, you can be pretty certain you are getting Easter Eggers. 

Easter Eggers tend to be much better layers than Ameraucana.

Thanks so much for your advice! 
It can take a bit to learn breeds, but just keep paying attention to people's information and look up chicken breeds and try memorize what each one looks like. smile.png Chicks are adorable! wink.png You're most welcome

Prosper! It's 16% protein! I get it at Theisen's.  I wanted to feed them Nutrena feed but i couldn't afford it.  When i get chicks i will probably give them Country feeds Chick Starter Grower! Have you ever used Country feeds before? I haven't. Any ideas for any chick starter food?  I don't really want to use Purina. 

When i got them they were 1 1/2 yrs old.  They will be 2 in the spring i'm guessing!  When i talked to the lady i bought them from, i asked her if they were all laying before i got them, She said " I have so many i am not sure who is laying. But i have a lot of green eggs everyday so some are!"
