I completely agree.  :)  Luckily I wasn't looking specifically for Ameraucanas, I just wanted to hatch out some eggs under my broody.  But I do think that when someone tells me they are selling Ameraucanas (advertised as such) I should be able to trust that, even if I was less informed that I should have been.  I know now to be more skeptical.

Agreed!  May I suggest what we do in purebred dogs?  Go to the breed's official website, look at their membership list, hopefully find a breeder within driving distance, and get your stock from a member breeder!  If none are available close by, it will be worth the shipping costs to be certain of the quality of your flock.  JMHO, of course!
