    Hi! When I bought these the lady said they were Araucana's. However, I know that actual Araucanas are a bit more rare than Ameraucana/EE. Any thoughts? [​IMG]

    Araucanas don't have tails so it definitely not one, it looks like an Easter Egger to me.

    I was kind of thinking that too. It doesn't matter much to me, I was just curious on others opinions :) Thanks for the responses!

    It is VERY hard to find pure-bred Ameraucanas in local stores. If you didn't specifically go looking for Ameraucanas, you most likely have an Easter Egger.[​IMG]

    Pure bred Ameraucana's also cost much more than an EE
