I know usually they are Easter Egger and that's fine....I have some now and want to add to the flock. Just want to be sure I'M calling them correctly, even if the seller is not. If if he is correct, that'd be cool to know too

They look just like my EE. To be considered an ameraucana they must meet certain color and form standards. Those he pictured do not meet color standards.

They are pretty though. I love fun colored EEs. If you like them, go for it!

The whole EE/ameraucana battle can get really heated.

I have both and love both. As a breeder though it is frustrating when someone is trying to pass "mutts" off as something that I try really hard to improve. I try to be really honest when I advertise my birds for sale. Granted, I think most people call all of them ameraucanas out of ignorance and not out of malice. It's all about education.

My favorite thing about the EEs is all the color and pattern variations. Hatching EEs is always a blast because you never know what will come out of that shell. I love the ones that look like those he has pictured. They just look so rich! I hope he has something that will work with your flock.
