Fun Facts: The Ameraucana is one of the most mistaken breeds; often referred to as Araucanas. Although both green eggers Ameraucanas have different breed characteristics, most notably the absence of ear tufts. Ameraucanas are also referred to as Easter Eggers, a nod to their colored eggs. However, the term Easter Eggers truly refers to chickens that carry the blue egg gene but do not meet the Ameraucana breed standard.
