    If you search the words Easter Egger, Ameraucana and Auracana you will find a TON of info.

    My understanding is an Ameraucana or an Aracauna crossed with anything but = an Easter Egger.

    EEs actually fit the look of the Ameraucana more than an Araucana. They have muffs/beards and are fully tailed. I used Ameraucana when I worked with EEs years ago.

    EEs are any cross that somewhere in its background laid a blue egg.
