    What had me doubting was that one has white legs instead of blue/green

    Agreed, they're Easter Egger roosters. Doesn't necessarily mean the seller lied to you, lots and lots of folks would call those purebred Ameraucanas, cause that's what hatcheries sell them as. It's that pesky Standard of Perfection that gets in the way lol.

    Both are Easter Egger cockerels

    And just a little piece of information Ameraucanas should never have green legs, always slate. If they do have green then that by default makes them Easter Eggers
