I have 6 Ameraucana Bantam eggs and 6 Jersey Giant eggs on the incubator and yesterday was day 7. When I candled the eggs all but one of the Jersey Giants looked really good, but when I candled the Ameraucanas their shells looked almost bubbly and I could not see into the almost at all. Is this normal for the Ameraucanas or is there something wrong with my eggs?

You probably need a stronger candling light. Shells will have a lot of differences in their quality and density. The first year of laying will give you the best quality shell. Adding calcium to their diet can improve shell quality.
