I bought my EE's at a feed store. They were sold as "Araucanas." They come pretty close to Ameraucanas.
I have searched the internet and found info here at BYC.
I must say "I LOVE MY EE's!"
From what I have read EE's are more colorful (or come in
a lot of colors.) I read that EE'S lay more eggs than true Ameraucnas. I can't swear that is correct but mine lay
nearly everyday. They are friendly & sweet.
Some folks don't know the difference between EE & Ameraucna or even know there is a difference. Sometimes it is not dishonesty so much as the seller is unaware of the facts. I thought mine were Ameraucana. Now I realize they are most likely EEs.
