    I just got 2 babies and I don't know how to tell what kind of Ameraucanas they will be. I tried to upload a couple of pics.

    Where did you get them from? Unless they came from a reputable Ameraucana breeder and were pretty expensive, they will be Easter Eggers and not true Ameraucanas. Hatcheries and feed stores frequently and incorrectly market their Easter Eggers as Ameraucanas. The only exceptions are Meyer Hatchery which breeds Blue Ameraucanas (My Pet Chicken is also a distributor of Meyer's birds) and Cackle Hatchery which breeds Black Ameraucanas and both of these hatcheries charge 5 times as much for their Ameraucanas as they do for their Easter Eggers.
