    Any ideas? When I picked them out I asked for a cuckoo maran, a wyandotte and an ameraucana. What do you think?

    Pullet A is a Cuckoo Marans. An Easter Egger or possible Blue-laced red Wyandotte for Cockerel(?) B. Could you give us a closer look at his comb, with better lighting? Pullet C is an Easter Egger.

    I have a bantam ee that looks identical to your gray bird. Mine is even getting silver around the neck like yours.

    Looks like what you got is a Cuckoo Marans (if the legs are white, not yellow-if they're yellow, it's a Barred Rock), a single combed Blue Laced Red Wyandotte (should be a rose comb) and an Easter Egger ( not a true Ameraucana).

    The comb's wrong on the wyandotte but the lacing looks pretty good--I'll bet it'll be one pretty bird!

    It looks like you got what you wanted [​IMG]

    The first is a Cuckoo Marans (pretty pink legs)- pullet

    The second is a Blue Laced Wyandotte- don't worry about the comb, it's actually not uncommon in Blue Laces. You just couldn't show the bird. - poosible roo

    The third is a bit of a mystery. Either the hatchery has given you an Old English bantam Silver Duckwing, or they have crossed that breed into their EEs (which hatcheries commonly call 'Ameraucana', despite it not being true). Definitely a pullet either way.
