    Hi, can someone with Ameraucana experience please help me!? I'm confused on this. Is an easter egger a different breed than an Ameraucana, or are they the same? Also, is it true that they are related to the Araucana breed? Thank you in advance!

    Yes, an Easter egger is different than an Ameraucana. Easter Eggers are mix breed of bird. Not sure if they are related to the Araucana or not. Maybe with someone more experience with the breed can tell you. I know that feed stores and hatcheries usually call them Ameraucana's for some reason. I know that I love all my Easter eggers.
