    Can only see bits and pieces of your chickens. If you can get some good pictures of the individual birds - post them at "what breed or gender it is." Please mention age when doing so. Welcome to Backyard chickens.

    The reason it's confusing is hatcheries and feed stores use a blanket label of Araucana/Ameraucana/Americana for anything that can lay different colored eggs, ie, blue, green, pink... if you got them from a feed store or hatchery, almost certainly it is an EE...



    First pic also looks like she has green legs, yes? That is a flag for an Easter Egger...

    Araucanas are rumpless and tufted... true Ameraucanas have slate legs, bearded/muffed, and are an accepted color... true Ameraucanas will always be listed as a specific color, ie, black, blue, buff, silver, wheaten, etc...

    Does that help? :)
