    Most people have Easter Eggers because they are easier to come by than purebred Ameraucanas. Green legs is always an indication of an Easter Egger because purebred Ameraucanas have white skin not yellow and thier legs are slate. Easter Egger roosters are some of the most beautiful you will ever see because they can be so colorful, they can also be some of the nicest.
