    Every hatch I get at least one blond chick out of my blue eggs. I've been only hatching blue and green eggs from my EE's the pink ones are to close to what my brown egger lay so we eat them. the male is a blue Ameraucana and the hens are feed store Ameraucana (EE's) I dont know if I should sell them as EE's or what? HELP me please.

    Yup yup, definitely sell them as EEs. Part of the fun of EEs is all the wonderful colors they can come in, due to their mixed nature.

    I would bet that your little blondie is going to end up being a black and white bird. Good luck, and enjoy your fluffybutts!

    Unless both parents are purebred Ameraucanas, then they are not Ameraucanas. You can call the Easter Eggers or Ameraucana crosses. One of the things I love about Easter Eggers is the wild coloration...you just never know what will hatch out!
