    Quote:Not exactly. Ameraucanas and Araucanas are two different breeds; you can do a search here or elsewhere to see their two individuall breed characteriistcs and colors. Their one shared trait is that of laying blue eggs. EEs, often marketed as Americanas/Araucanas, are of many mixed characteristics and colors; their only necessary common trait to Ameraucanas and Araucanas is a possibility they might lay a blue or green egg. BTW, I own both Ameraucanas and EEs.

    I recently got some ameraucana buffs I hatched out from a breeder. Now the legs are not quite slate, but noticed turning everyday. One I think is a ee because there is striping on the face and feathers. Not, a big deal she will go in with my egg layers but my question is do buffs also have the white feet because they are looking yellow to me.
