X2 on sourland's post. There is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html explaining the difference between true Ameraucanas, true Araucanas, and Easter Eggers at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html. You can see the SOP standards for true Ameraucanas at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html. The Ameraucana Breeders Club considers any bird that lays colored eggs but does not meet each and every one of those standards to be an Easter Egger.
