OK just to clear (or make more unclear...whatever the case may be) an EE is just an Ameraucana or Araucana that does not meet the "standard"? I had a purebred yorkshire terrier, if she had a "defect" that didn't meet the standard what would she be? I thought she just wasn't show quality but was indeed still a purebred yorkie. I have read soooo many post on ameraucanas (because I have 6 of them) and I have no idea what they are. It doesn't matter what breed they are except I want to know. I don't like telling people that either I don't know what it is or it is just a mutt. Some of my girls have fluff around their face some don't. Some are white, blue and a beautiful brown pheasant color and one that seems to be changing. I have had many people say they were Ameraucanas and a few say EE. I guess my question is this. Who is this person who determines what is or isn't so that I may ask them? Maybe then I would know. Is this the only breed where there is such confusion? I sure hopeso. Just when I think I get some info I get much more confused. I really hope I am not alone here. Is there a way to make this sooooo simple? I fear my girls are have an identity crisis.
