From what I have read, any feed store selling hatchery-bred birds will not have Araucanas, no matter what the hatchery labels them as. If they have real ones, they got them from a private breeder.
Same almost certainly goes for Ameraucanas. MyPetChicken is offering genuine Ameraucanas (next year?) and they use Meyer Hatchery, but I'm going to hazard a guess that the average feed store arau-anything, isn't.
