    I got these 4 chicks from a lady who said that they were Americauna... but I have never been around any of the chicks and I am a little curious if that is really what they are??

    They could be Easter Eggers like you were told, but could also be a "Feedstore Red" (RIR, Broilers, ect) or Mixes,

    I think you have a mix: a couple Plymouth Rocks (and some of the breeds mentioned by CascadiaRiver), I see a Red sex-link also.

    I've raised lots of RIR, so I didn't think they were that ( maybe with the exception of the little reddish looking one)... at what age do you think they will need to be before I can really tell what they are?

    Honestly with better pictures we maybe able to tell you now. After looking at them again I think you only have Red sex-links ( aka Red stars, Red Comets) and White Plymouth Rocks.
