    So I acquired some hens from a friend and her father. Most are true ameraucanas and 2 other breeds I already know. There were two of these hens and I'm not quite sure what they are!

    Sorry for the bad photos and semi dirty coop (just had a baby so it's hard to get out there to clean!). [​IMG][​IMG]

    Are the brown hens identified?


    The black one might be a cuckoo marans.

    Yes the brownish ones in the picture are ameraucanas, it's the black one with the white tipped wings I'm not sure of. I too thought cuckoo marans but am unsure.

    Are they? I was under the impression of ameraucana as they fit 100% breed standard with the brown red coloring they also came with wheaten, splash, and blue ameraucanas; so I assumed they were the red brown coloring. But I don't know much about chicken breed anywho haha but I do have one EE hen prior to getting this lot of girls and they look totally different. Go figure!

    Well post some pictures of them in good light showing the side of the chicken in a standing position.

    Or you could google pictures of the SOP quality chickens for comparison.

    They lay nice blue eggs :) I know that several were the daughter's show chickens. I got them because she switched to just doing bantams. 2 were not show quality so perhaps those are the what are in the picture too
