    True Ameraucana's only come in 8 distinquished colors with slate skin and white on the bottom of their feet. Where as EE's come in wide varities. I may be wrong but this link can tell you more!

    On chicks you won't be able to tell their adult color so the best bet before figuring it out would be to wait and see how they feather out. But typically if you have no other chickens with said hen besides the two roo's and if they are true your chicks will be true. If you have multiple chickens then it could be mixed eggs or EE.

    Do you have pictures of you chickens? That could help determine if they are true aswell.

    Oh well if they are bearded with muffs and are black with slate colored legs and light grey white on the bottom of their feet then it should meet Ameraucana traits as long as they including the roosters have small wattles hardly noticble and pea combs. Pictures would do them justice though. ;)
