    ... I feel like writing an open letter to hatcheries to complain about the fact that they basically lie to their customers by selling "Ameraucanas" and "Araucanas" when really, whether you like it or not, they are "just" Easter Eggers. [​IMG]

    You can write one to Coastal Farm Store I was there today looking at chicks and they were labeled Ameraucanas that lay green and pink eggs. I am like Oh no they are not. [​IMG]

    Not this again...

    None of the hatcheries claim show quality or to even breed to any standard. Hatcheries are breeding for production. Always have.

    The blue egg breeders are the only group that seems to throw a fit about this. But then, they are the only group that treats people that dirt for owning a bird that is not show quality an tells them they have to call it a different name.

    If they are eastereggers shouldn't they be labeled as such?
