    Are Ameracanas, EEs and Easter Eggers all the same breed?

    EE stands for Easter eggers. So, they are the same. This is not a pure breed. It is a mixture... ie mutt chicken that may or may not lay a colored egg.

    Ameraucanas are a recognized pure breed. They have a Standard of Perfection established by the APA. They lay a blue egg. They are NOT the same as an EE.
