    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Your chicks are actually Easter Eggers rather than true Ameraucanas, but they are adorable. Hatcheries frequently and incorrectly market their Easter Eggers (which are hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown egg layers to produce offspring that lay eggs in colors other than just blue) as Ameraucanas although they are not in fact Ameraucanas which is a true breed. There is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html explaining the difference between true Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers. Easter Eggers are my granddaughter's (pictured in my avatar) favorite hens as she loves their colored eggs. :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
