So, I bought Cleo as an Ameraucana from the local feed store, she lays eggs on the C level of the Ameraucana egg color chart, but I am not sure if she is actually an ameraucana. Please let me know what you think.

I'm saying she's an EE and a very pretty one

True Ameracauna are basically unheard of in feed stores for sale. Simply because they're too expensive and not a lot of hatcheries are even carrying them. Most feed stores sell chicks for 2-5$ each, true Ameracauna cost 10-20$ each.

True Ameracauna have specific colors and should always be labeled with their color. EE on the other hand can be any color and lay any color but often look similar to your girl.

I am not so sure both of the eggs pictured are hers.... both are VERY differently shaped. Each bird has its own unique same shape to each egg.
In the one about Sprite? The blue one is Sprites, the greenish one is the same as pictured in Cleo's eggs as the greener one is hers, the first one she laid. I put it next to Sprites to see the color difference.
