    Am I right in thinking that the mumma is a black Araucana? I am not sure who the dad was as I got her with her chicks and there were lots of different chooks and roosters at the place I got her from. Do these look like they would have all been her eggs so I can have an idea whether they are all the same breed or whatnot.

    The Ameraucana/Easter Egger has a pea comb. Since the pea comb is generally considered a dominant trait, I would believe that the chicks without nice single combs could be your mama's offspring (blue, and maybe black).
