No,they'd still be Ameraucanas but the offspring would likely not be varieties that have been admitted to the Standard. This is how new varieties are created, ask the OEGB breeders. You could always call them a "project".

The Ameraucana standard doesn't have much wiggle room. Does the bird meet the listed standards? If yes, then you have am Amerauacna. If no, it falls under EE. Doesn't make it inferior, if a bird is an Easter Egger. But be careful, people can get pretty uppity about what is or isn't an Ameraucana, which is a bit disconcerting for new folks.

Araucanas standards are not as rabid about what is or isn't, because it can be SO hard to get a good Araucana. Just a different breed community.

They are not an Ameraucana unless it is a standard color that is reproduced by breeding 2 individuals together. Calling them project birds will not make them Ams; only following the process for acceptance of a new color will do that.
