    I got these two chicks sold as ameraucana pullets, their names are Violet and Cyan,I was wondering if they are ameraucana or Easter eggers also what color they are and possible age. Thanks in advance.

    They are most likely Easter Eggers.
    Unless you bought them from a breeder of true Ameraucanas.
    You will not know what they will look like until they get a little older.

    Easter Eggers. Any breeder that raises the true Ameraucanas would have told you what color they are.

    Ditto on them being EEs. They're 2.5-3.5 weeks old.

    Update on violet and Cyan they are about 7 weeks old. Are they pullets? Their combs are slightly red
