    I bought my chicks from Triple D here in Alaska and he sold them as Araucanas. I have read a little about them and mine have puffy cheeks, but not the tuffs. I didn't care if they were pure bred I just don't want to call them the wrong thing.

    Since your cute little chick has muffs/beard (not tufts), it is either an EE or Ameraucana. You will probably know better once it feathers out to see if it's plumage and other features matches the standard required for an Ameraucana. If it does, you know what you got. If it doesn't, it's an EE. Regardless, I am sure you will enjoy her. She's adorable!
