    OK you tell me what I got here...
    The roo came from a blue egg...
    The black frizzle hen is either a EE or a frizzled black copper maran.... Can't remember which colored egg she came from????
    The red girls are sexed linked reds....

    So what do you call each of them... Thanks

    Call them EasterEggers.

    Except for those without beards, they are mutts.

    I'm reluctant to say it, but it looks like you could have some Wheaten Ameraucanas. I say reluctant since it would be unusual to happen upon them without knowing as they aren't that common, but the pullets look like the right color from the photo.

    The rooster looks close, but he should have a dark chest.

    You're safe calling them Easter Eggers. Pretty birds!

    Quote:I agree, the hens look close... it's possible the hens are but I'm employing the "If you have to ask..." rule.
