    Here's a different breed I found called an "Estelle" easter egger that claims to be unrelated to the Araucana breeds. It's imported from the Czech Republic. So I think the Easter Egger terminology refers to anything that lays a colored egg. Just because a chicken is called an "Easter Egger" doesn't mean it has Araucana or Ameraucana in it's ancestry.
