    We are new with this breed, but we have tested fertility. 40 eggs in the incuabtor and only 2 were not fertile. Pretty good fertitlity rate.
    I will send the bluest eggs available.

    They look like fine Easter Eggers to me rather than Ameraucanas.

    What color are they meant to be?

    Hi, they are pretty Easter Eggers, but those are not Ameraucanas.

    They are supposed to be. They are laying all blue eggs, no greens or pinks. nothing but blue.
    They were crossed with different colors of other Ameraucanas. They had browns and whites, blacks, lavender. They have them all together and these are a third generation from them.

    That is why they lay blue eggs.

    As they are not a standard Ameraucana color they are by definition EE's.

    So these are GREAT for getting those pretty eggs, just not "ameraucanas"

    Doesn't EE lay different colors?

    Not necessarily. Depends on what the breeding of the chicken is.

    Ones that are from ameraucana and araucana backgrounds will lay blue and blue-green.

    EEs that lay brown and pink eggs have other genes/breeds in their making, as well as ameraucana or araucana

    Im not an expert on the breed. However I do get pretty PO when people don't read all of the information and assume they know what they are talking about.
    Especially since you are slandering someone elses birds.

    If you read what the seller said then you would have seen the seller stated:
    they were from a pen with different colors of Ameraucana running together so that is why they are not the recognised colors!
    Shouldn't they just be called project colors of Ameraucanas or a mix of colors and NOT EE since both the hens and roos were Ameraucanas!
    Nothing worse than having your pure breds called mutts!

    They very well could have some EE blood in them I am just saying........ If the hens and roos were true then these would be to???
    Off the soap box now

    That is exactly what I thought. The first generation when was on the property are all solid colors. But they are running together. They had a first generation lot, second and third. They were not selling any of the first and second generation. Just the third. I guess I should have stated this all in the listing. Anyway they do lay blue eggs. Some lighter and some darker. But definately no greens or browns.
    Thanks 2hot2chicken for your understanding.
