Bought these ameraucana chicks at a feed store, what colors will they be?

    I thinking the two on the right will be brown/red 's, but I'm not sure about my sweet girl on the right. I'm curious if others who know the breed better might have an idea. I'm branching out from my orpingtons :)

    If you bought them from a feed store, they'll all be Easter egger colored, not pure colors.

    Do you mind explaining the difference? I'm sorry I'm still really new to the breed.

    They're probably Easter Eggers.

    The EEs I picked up (also mislabeled as Araucanas and Ameracaunas) that looked like the two on the left are showing up ginger red now. One looks like a Sicilian Buttercup. [​IMG]
    A few of them have darker heads with muffs and beards, but one of them looks a lot like this girl (she's a Cackle OEGB hen 'cause I can't seem to get my own pics to upload today).
