    Hi,

    We bought this guy at a swap meet, along with 3 others like it - offically our 1st chickens! They said they are Araucanas, but from reading posts here, that can't be possible. What do you think we have?

    Here's one of our RIRs. We have another that looks just like him(?) and two others with a less pronounced comb. What do you think?

    1st post w/ pics, they may not go through.

    Thanks!

    Yep, definitely an Easter egger, probably a pullet. The little RIR looks like a male, and the one near the bottom of the pic does too. I hope the two with less comb are females!

    Does she have a tail? It looks like maybe she doesn't? Also can't tell whether or not she has tufts; it sort of looks like there may be the beginnings of small ones, but the angle is poor to being able to tell.

    She has a body type that looks like an araucana, but I'm not quite sure about the transverse penciling on her back, and what variety she is.
