    It is spelled Ameraucana and that is the only way it is spelled. Where did you get them? That will help us answer your questions.

    Do you have any pictures of them to post? Also do you know how old they are?

    They are easter eggers and can lay a variety of different colored eggs.

    I had some back in Feb that looked identical to that. We called them our chipmunk chicks. They are now gorgeous golden and black flecked hens and they lay light blue and light green eggs. You'll love them!
