    The eggs were purchased on ebay. Very nice looking blue eggs. There was a link to the lady's website. Nice looking birds in the pics. Sold as blue, black, or splash.

    This pic shows their coloring alittle better. They are the two on the left.

    http://www.ameraucana.org/ not sure if you have seen the breed website They are too young to tell if they meet the standard type wise, color wise blue & black are recognized colors, splash is not. they do have pics of blue/black as chicks http://www.ameraucana.org/scrapbook and Feathersite has some htmlhttp://feathersite.com/Poultry/CGA/Arau/BRKArauChik.html might help you tell the color irl, in the pics that light one looks like it might be splash and the other two blue but not sure how much the camera is washing out the color.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at the links. The really light one on the right is a maran.
