    My birds are growing!!! They have done awesome their first week out in the outside coop, they seem much happier! They have changed drastically this past week, and I noticed the coloring being much different on this bird than the other bird (which I also thought was ameraucana but turned out to be EE). So I am wondering because of the difference, what do yall think? Ameraucana or EE?

    It is an easter egger. None of these are ameraucanas. Ameraucanas only come in certain colors and also have pea combs (and most ees do too, and your second one does not, so it's quite possibly not an EE).


    Americauna, with the "I", is just a hatchery term for easter eggers. There are no real ameraucanas here.
