    Ameraucana is pronounced Amer-ah-cana, which is way it is often misspelled Americana. I only found out myself after asking someone here! [​IMG]

    Araucana in OUR house is pronouced A-roo-cana, but I've also heard it pronounced A-rah-cana, so I think either could be right.

    As for your other questions, I'll have to leave those to some other expert! [​IMG]
