    So about 4 weeks ago I purchased 4 ameraucana chicks. In the past I have purchased so called "Ameraucana" but they all turned out to be Easter eggers. So I'm wondering whether these are legit or not?[​IMG]

    They're perfectly legitimate Easter eggers. Great backyard birds, come in lots of colors, lay a variety of egg shades.

    They're not Ameraucana. If you want pure bred Ameraucana, you need to decide what color variety you want and find a breeder or one of the select few hatcheries that sell pure bred birds.

    Ok thanks. It just makes me mad that they lie to their customers because I was planning on showing them in 4H and I even told them that :/
