    That's disappointing...why do they tell you your buying amerecaunas when they are really Easter eggers?

    Where is she from? If she is from anywhere but a well- educated breeder, they are EE's. All feed store or hatchery "Americanas" are Easter Eggers, not Ameraucanas. There is nothing wrong with EE's though, they are very pretty, docile, and have beautiful eggs. I have 5 and really enjoy having them. :)

    Sometimes they don't know (I mean they do not understand the distinction).
    Where did you get these?
