    They are Easter Eggers. The only true Ameraucana that you get from a hatchery are the blue/black/splash variety. If you buy "Ameraucana" that are not a specified color, you are actually getting Easter Eggers.

    I got them from someone local. Not really a big deal as long as they lay me plenty of eggs. I'll probably buy some from a true ameraucana breeder in the spring

    X2 on junebuggena's post; also the green egg is indicative of an Easter Egger as true Ameraucanas lay only blue eggs.
