Let's be honest I feel silly to be unsure at this point but Ameraucanas just leave me scratching my head...

This is the best picture I could manage. And it is a blue, so a male would not have other colors mixed.
This is one of five I hatched from shipped eggs, and I had really given up that they were all roosters because their combs have been fairly red for a while now. Until I counted up how many weeks old they were today and it occurred to me that their combs are really not very large, but I wanted opinions from more practiced eyes. So I am happily contemplating that they may be mostly be girls...

You are right it looks like the blue, splash, and lavender americauna roosters are all 1 color just like the hens. I’m ordering me some lavender americaunas they are beautiful
Ameraucanas (spelled like that) come in distinct recognized colors and are purebred.
Americaunas/Americanas/Easter Eggers (all spelled like this) are all the same thing. They are mixed breed chickens that often lay green eggs and can come in any color.

The difference between the purbreds and mutts is important. Pay close attention to how the breed is spelled in ads. If it is spelled correctly and comes in a SPECIFIED recognized color than it is likely pure.

Just food for thought :)

Americanas are americaunas bread back with the araucana
And have completely different color patterns. I have a few of all 3 breeds
I even ended up with a rumpless Americana from tractor supply which I’ve never even seen before but it’s a beautiful bird.My Easter eggers are Orpington/americauna and I have 1 that’s black copper Maran/americauna
My Easter Eggers lay olive and pink eggs
