    Easter Egger is not another name for Ameraucanas, it is another name for 'mutt chicken'. I love the colors in your birds, especially the roo, but they are not Ameraucanas. See the sticky at the top of the breeds section for more info.

    "Easter Egger is not another name for Ameraucanas, it is another name for 'mutt chicken'. I love the colors in your birds, especially the roo, but they are not Ameraucanas. See the sticky at the top of the breeds section for more info."

    History of the Ameraucana
    Ameraucanas were bred from Easter Eggers, A MIXED NON-STANDARD BREED derived from breeding the native South American Araucana with Old World varieties. The APA officially accepted Ameraucana as standard breeds in 1984.

    The characteristic muff and beard of the Ameraucana are present in U.K. Araucana as these traits are present in the Mapuche and Quechua de Artes founder stock imported into Europe from the Falkland Islands. The fully feathered faces of the founder stock are of vital importance as they insulate the birds against the frigid cold of southern coastal South America. Winds from Antarctica bring the temperatures to minus zero for months at a time. Blue egg laying chickens brought to the Falklands by Argentinians, traded from Mapuche and Quechua speaking Indians, were later exported from the Falkland Islands by British guano and fishing fleets. The Ameraucana is descended of U.K. Araucanas brought into North America during the World Fair in Toronto and Montreal's 1967 Expo. Molecular data retrieved from specimens of known provenance in the Falklands, U.K., Shetland Isles and Canada, proved to be closely related. Consequently, the Ameraucana is probably closer genetically to the South American founders than the North American Araucana.


    Hmmm, so in turn, the Ameraucana is a "mutt" chicken, so why is it not safe to assume that the Ameraucana can also be called EE?
