    Easter eggers, I think? Are they from a hatchery?

    I ordered all female Ameraucanas from Murray McMurray hatchery and paid more for them individually as compared to a package deal.

    Ah, okay, those are Easter Eggers (most hatcheries mislabel them). I would expect to get about $10 a piece at 6 weeks old, $15 if you're lucky. You could certainly get $20 for "real" Ameraucanas, though.

    from what I have read most all green egg layers have some Ameraucana in them, and Ameraucana is a mix itself.

    Every breed, even in dogs, starts as a mix/mutt lol. However, Ameraucanas are a recognized breed with accepted varieties and a standard (which includes muffs). Easter Eggers are the mixed breeds that have a blue egg layer somewhere in their heritage but can lay any color because of the randomized inheritance of genes, and they may or may not be muffed.

    Not trying to be argumentative, by the way. Just trying to find out what really IS the standard.

    Yup, those are definitely EEs not Ameraucanas. Ameraucanas only come in a few accepted colors, that’s not one of them. And Ameraucanas ONLY lay blue eggs not green ect. Most hatcheries don’t sell Ameraucanas only EEs or they’ll mislabel them as Ameraucanas which is very deceiving.

    The image you referenced is NOT an actual Ameraucana. I’m not sure why they used it.
