    Their is only one type of true Ameraucana and they come in 7 recognized colors, blue being one of them. And Ameraucanas must have the muffs/beards on the face. The one on the left would be a true Blue Ameraucana, the one on the right would be a Splash sport, but since the standard doesn't recognize Splash, it would technically be an Ameraucana even thought it has the same body type. The leggs to me don't really look white, but maybe just the light slate color, and it may just be lighting from when the pic was taken.

    OH yeah, you can easily tell it's a splash, just from the color.
