Confusion with Easter Egger chickens

The Ameraucana Breeders Club defines an Easter Egg chicken, or Easter Egger,
as any chicken that possesses the blue egg gene, but doesn’t fully meet any breed description as defined in the APA standards.
Further, even if a bird (that possesses the blue egg gene) meets an APA standard breed description, but doesn’t meet a variety
description or breed true at least 50% of the time it is considered an Easter Egg chicken. (The American Poultry Association's
American
Standard of Perfection)
This means if your bird does not meet a color requirement, it is in Easter Egger.  In other words, most Easter Egg chickens are "mutts"
which happen to carry the blue egg gene. True Ameraucanas are rare.

Large Fowl
We added 2 blue Ameraucana roosters in early
summer 2012 to replace our black Ameraucana
rooster.  Since adding the two brothers we
have seen an occasional blue wheaton chick.

Please be aware there is a possibility of getting
Blue Wheaten offspring  from our  Blue
Ameraucanas.
Thank you!
