    I ordered some eggs online, they are suppose to be Araucana .They came today.They are all light blue or green.Here is the confusion, he marked them in pencil #1 #2 #3 and then splash, od, rnbo. What are the last couple suppose to mean? This is the first time I have seen that on any Araucana that I have ordered and I haven't been able to get a hold of the seller to ask him about it.

    Well most people who offer Araucana/Ameraucana eggs are getting their birds Confused with the True breeds. Araucana and Ameraucana are two completely different pure breeds. And the ones you get from a hatchery or feedstore are usually Easter Eggers. Sounds like he labeled them based on order and coloration of birds.
    Let us know how the hatch goes!
    Thanks!
