I've heard a lot of people ask, What is the difference between an Easter Egger and a Ameraucana? So I decided to create this article on the differences between the two breeds.
First of all, most Ameraucanas only come in specific colors, like black, lavender, buff, white, etc... Easter eggers are mixed colors, like tan with black speckles, grayish blue, etc...
Easter eggers can also lay pink, blue, green, brown, and cream colored eggs. Ameraucanas can only lay blue eggs. The Easter Egger is a hybrid of the Araucana and/or other breeds to get brightly colored eggs. They are not a true breed, and are not recognized by the American Poultry Association. They are often confused with the Ameraucana and Araucana. Ameraucanas are not a hybrid.
I hope this article helps you all!
