What is required to make a chicken an Ameraucana and not an Easter Egger? For a great deal from a local breeder I got a mix of green and blue egg layer hatching eggs, but I wouldn't get to know what breeds they were. About 9 months later I have Super Blues and Easter Eggers, but one of them I think may be a pure Ameraucana. The breeder does breed Ameraucanas so there is a chance, but I don't know the difference between Easter Eggers and Ameraucanas, I know they have to have a beard and muffs and can only be certain colors, but that's as far as my breed knowledge reaches. I realize I worded this thread horribly. My apologies. I want to know how to tell them apart myself, not by just posting pictures and having other people say this or that. I want to learn how to do that myself. Sorry, I'm not good at explaining my thoughts.
