Tooo many blue egg layers. I'm confused! I bought some last year from Ideal, marked "Aracaunas". And they look like a chicken listed on feathersite as EEs. Then, I ordered some "Ameracaunas" this year from McMurray, and they are identical to the ones I bought last year. Then I bought some more "Ameracaunas" this year from a farm store, but these guys are gonna be black and white. i can tell from their feathering (5 weeks). But according to feathersite, they're not "Ameracaunas" or "Aracaunas". They're "easter eggers." Now, to my understanding, easter eggers are of unpure breeding. So are all the hatcheries selling mutt blue egg layers as "Ameracaunas" when they're not? Can pure ameracaunas or aracaunas even be bought from hatcheries?
