Araucana are rumpless (in the US). Ameraucana are a true breed and will always be sold associated with a color (buff, black,...) EE do not breed true, so they are not an actual breed, but more like a mutt who lays fun colored eggs. (Still good if that's what you are looking for)Just bought the exact same chick on Saturday (4 days ago) from the local large-chain feed store. Bought on sold as a Barred Rock and one sold as an Araucana with the exact same coloring as yours. I got her for the blue eggs and because she was adorable. Still trying to give her and her sister names. (Sister is a Barred Rock...or so the sign said.)
What's the difference - Araucana/Ameraucana/EE?
Some hatcheries do have Ameraucana, but only a few. And they only have Blue/Black/Splash. No other varieties are available via hatcheries.Definately EE's, no Amercuanas in any of the hatcheries ever been found. If you want Amercuanas, you must go to an Amercuana breeder, the one those who are the member of the Amercuana Club...they are the best source for your Amercuana chicks.
