There are so many misinterpretations of the name Ameracauna. Your pic is of what could be a young Wheaten cockerel, but, as I am by far no where near an expert in what constitutes a specific breed of chicken, you would be better off digging around the available research on Ameracaunas.
The breed standards are :
Muffs and beard
White foot bottoms
Always lay blue eggs
They come in eight distinct colors including, Blue, Black, White and Wheaten, which all share these distinct Ameraucana traits:
So, I vote no based on the pic.
There is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html explaining the difference between true Ameraucanas, true Araucanas, and Easter Eggers.
