    Some
    good reading [​IMG] Will answer your question too I think [​IMG] EEs can come in ANY color combination.... but true Ameraucanas and Araucanas have only so many colors recognized per breed. (though there are sports and people working on new colors)

    For Americaunas, I think it's pretty unlimited, since they aren't a "pure" breed as are the Aracaunas....

    But don't quote me... I'm no expert by any means!!!

    Actually colors are VERY limited. If you have the wrong color then it is not accepted as an Ameraucana....it's an Easter Egger. Check their website, it has a lot of good information and pictures.

    True Ameraucanas only come in about 8 colors. If they are not one of those, they are Easter Eggers.

    I am not sure where to put this but I would like to say that this is the only place that I know of that you can ask the simplest of questions or a very advanced question and not be judged or laughed off the site. This place is AWESOME.
