    I'm new to the Chicken world but have been doing a lot of reading. I've placed my order for 6 Easter Eggers, 12 RIR's and 6 blue Maran's. The more I read, the less I'm sure if Easter Eggers and Ameracaunas are different types of Chickens or the same Chicken with a cute nickname.
    What say the eggsperts? (-:
