    This is all of them I was wondering if anyone thought the yellow one was a true Ameraucana and if they were all EE besides her. Also wondering if all pullets. Don't worry they are getting a bigger cage.

    There are 8 recognized varieties of Ameraucauna: black, blue, blue wheaten, brown red, buff, silver, wheaten and white.

    I can't really tell what you've got in the picture you posted. Where did you get them? If they came from a hatchery or feed store, its highly likely that they are EEs. You could post your pics up on the Ameraucauna thread and see what the wonderful folks there think :)

    They are all Easter eggers . It is obvious with that mix of color that they are hatchery EE .

    X2 on all Easter Eggers. EEs are my granddaughter's favorite hens. She loves their colored eggs.

    Agree they're all Easter eggers. You're really not going to get a pure Ameraucana in a batch of EE unless the breeder sells them as such, and then you'd know the color of the pure chick.

    All are Easter Eggers. Unless you get chicks from a breeder, chances are you're going to end up with Easter Eggers (some hatcheries sell true Ameraucanas, but not many- I think that there may be only one).

    They look like Easter Egger chicks to me.
