    Ameraucana are supposed to lay eggs that are some shade of pastel blue. If they lay green eggs it is a sign of outcrossing with a brown egg strain or breed.

    I think true Ameraucanas are supposed to lay blue eggs, and blue eggs only.

    Question about the roosters are they load enough to annoy my neighbors? I live fairly close to their homes. Also, are they okay with kids

    All roosters have the potential to be very loud, even when it's dark out....hens can get pretty loud too but usually only during daylight hours.

    All roosters have the potential to cause bodily harm to any human especially children ....if you have small children I would strongly suggest that you don't have a rooster.

    Buttercup was rescued from a hoarder. She lays six small blue-green eggs/week and weighs ~3-3.5#. From my limited research, I figure she is an Ameraucana. What do you all think?

    its the color, any bird having a color not accepted by the SOP its labeled as a EE, even if they came from two pure Ameraucana parents,
