I'm interested in getting one of the two, Ameraucana or Easter Eggers, up until recently though I was under the assumption that they were the same breed? I was talking a friend of mine the other day who just picked up some Ameraucana chicks from the local feed store and she informed me that I was definately wrong. However, she didn't say what really set the two breeds apart? I know their appearances are similiar but what are the major differences in the breed? I'm mainly interested in whichever bird produces the green and blue tinted eggs. But I'd like to know more about egglaying (per day), physical attributes, behavior, etc. Somebody told me that they were the "mutt breed" of the chicken world? I know I could just google all this, but hearing it from someone who owns these birds seemed so much better. Thanks!
