    Here they are from 1 week old to 4 weeks old...

    Here's what they look like today. Are they all EE colors or are any of them Ameraucana colors?

    The rooster (very patriotic), also the brown on him is not dirt, it's part of his coloring

    white is an ameraucana color but i dont see any beards..it might be the pics but if they dont its more likely that they are EEs instead of pure Ameraucanas

    They are easter eggers. The roo has a funky comb and feathers on his legs....

    The tail set seems off, are they bantams?

    They are bantams. I figured they were EEs since they came from a hatchery, but I didn't know if any of them had real color patterns or if they were all just mixed. What kind of comb does the rooster have? It's definitely not a pea comb (or at least what I've seen in pictures) but not quite a rose comb either.
