They are Easter eggers. Many hatcheries/people call and sell EE as Ameraucanas or araucanas. Those girls look as if they have had a rough life.

Thanks!! Yes free range & many roos with them, 100 for sale. My pullets I got this spring don't lay yet. At $4.00 a doz for eggs around here. These girls will more than pay for themselves by the time the others start laying in Aug/Sept. Then chicken dinner.

You can purchase Easter Eggers from just about every hatchery there is. They are usually marketed as Araucana, or Ameraucana; but they do not meet the breed standard for either breeds.
