    A friend and I were discussing Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers and we are not sure what she actually has. Can anyone tell what the difference are. I know they are common mis-labeled by breeders and hatcheries, so any descriptions would help.

    I am aware of the true Araucanas as well (no rumps).

    Did she get them from Ideal or McMurray? If so, they're definitely Easter Eggers. If they came from any hatchery, you can almost guarantee they're Easter Eggers. Here is the standard for Ameraucana:
