What is the difference between Ameraucana, Araucana, and Easter Eggers? Or is EE a title for both?
Here's how I understand it.
Araucana's are the original breed (and only lay blue eggs), but they carry a lethal gene when breeding. So Ameraucana's were created to get away from the lethal gene. EE is a mixed breed with some Araucana or Ameraucana history in them, often laying blue or green eggs. (although the can lay any color egg) All hatcheries sell EE's as Ameraucana's.
That covers it!
