So I hear a lot of people on here calling their AMERAUCANA's Easter egger's. So this is the information I have found about all three. The AMERICANA is an EASTER EGGER, as people like to call them are actually a mish-mash of mixed breeds, with definitely some of the lethal gene of the Araucana or Ameraucana mixed in. This is what causes them to lay eggs of several different colors. The eggs can be anywhere from light tan, dark tan, blue, pinkish or even a pale yellow. The AMERAUCANA ~Has Ear Muffs ~Blue Shanks (legs) ~Red Ear Lobes ~Beautiful Tail ~Lays Blue Eggs only ~Comes in 8 different varieties (colors) recognized by the APA and the ABA. ~They can be large fowl or bantams. The ARAUCANA ~Has Ear Tufts ~No Definitive Tail ~Lays Blue Eggs only ~Comes in 5 different varieties (colors) recognized by the APA and 6 different varieties recognized by the ABA. ~They can be large fowl or bantams.
