Araucanas and ameraucanas ?! Wishful thinking?

The little guys with lighter faces photos 1-4 were sold as “ameraucanas”... I’m no chicken expert and have only owned silkies so this year we picked up a few different breeds to add birds that would lay colored eggs.
Could believe it when I saw “araucanas” advertised and took 3 chicks without hesitation a few days later.. the last photos of chicks with darker faces are supposedly “araucanas”. I called the store back a day later and queried if they were araucanas or someone had made a spelling mistake ... they assured me that they were. Any guesses ?

Thanks guys - that was my suspicion- obviously why I called the store back and said.... are you sure !??? After doing a little more research on them. They’ll be loved either way and now we will just see what array of eggs they start to lay ! Anybody think this chick could be a Roo or too early to tell ? Very different coloring to the two sibling chicks... far more copper and red

All of them are easter eggers
Thanks - any guesses what breeds they could be a mix of ? Slightly disappointing that my suspicions have been confirmed but totally unsurprised too. Wouldn’t have bought 6 EE chicks though to add to the flock... maybe 3 at most! I’ll be happy of the eggs they lay when my silkies are too busy being pretty to lay.
