    So i got these cuties yesterday. Told they were ameraucanas but I am thinking Easter eggers. Any other opinions would be appreciated. Thanks

I sure love these little birds. They all have the puffy cheeks and darker legs.

    Looks like my Easter Egger Cadbury. She lays light blue eggs

    Easter Eggers are much more likely especially if they are hatchery birds.

    My guess is EE. Ameraucanas have slate grey legs, not green or yellow. They do have some nice muffs on their faces. EE are great chickens.

    Yes they are hatchery babies. I saw them at the local feed store and they all had pasty butt and I couldn't stand that so I bought them!

    One of them has gray legs but the other 3 have a greenish look to them. I was trying to place the color but yes greenish seems appropriate.
