    All I would be able to guess is some kind of Bantam as they are small birds. Maybe someone else will help you out here. [​IMG]

    The black one looks like a Cochin bantam or cross of one, and if the others are laying green eggs they are more likely bantam Easter eggers or cross of them as well. And if they are that small they may be crossed with Serama.

    Little chickens are the best.
    Im thinking the brown is Ameraucana or EE cross too. I had a small silkie-cana as a broody and she looked just like that with a poof on her head and extra toes. She laid mossy/sea green eggs.

    I had her in with the Seramas, and when she was gone. I took her last egg and hatched it. I think it's a She, and going to be a SilkieSeramaCana. That's cool with me, she can brood some Serama eggs!!
    I LOVE using colored egg laying hens as broodys, because you can leave them in with your breeders,(or out in tractors) and you know who's egg is who's.
