Are my Ameraucanas actually Easter Eggers?

    I bought two chicks from the local feed store about 3 weeks ago. They were labeled Ameraucana but after doing a little reading lately I learned that they are more likely to be Easter Eggers. Thoughts?
    Also, I've read that especially with Easter Eggers identifying gender can be very difficult until several weeks old but any input would be appreciated! They have masculine names but we are hoping they're both pullets.

    Feed store = Easter eggers.

    For gender, post again around 6 weeks.
