    They lay the light blue eggs , got them from someone who didn't want chickens anymore, and told me they were Amerecaunas?

    They look like easter eggers. Almost the same thing as ameracaunas

    Easter Eggers. The person you got them from probably got them from a hatchery, where they are (falsely) sold as Ameraucanas. To be an Ameraucana the bird has to fit the breed SOP. And even pure Ameraucanas that don't fit the SOP are Easter Eggers.
