    We got an Ameraucana chick from the feeder store about a week ago, and were told that it was an Ameraucana. I just wanted to confirm that it is an Ameraucana, and not an Easter Egger.

    And if it is an Ameraucana, what breed color is it?

    If it's from a feed store, it's an Easter egger.

    Feed stores don't see real Ameraucanas. You have to go to established, and reputable, breeders for those.
