    Hello!

    Recently joined, looking for some help! Can anyone tell me what breed/color these chookies are? The bigger girl has grey under her wings, is pretty heavy set, and is not the smartest (even for a chicken:p). The little lady is quite petite, and very fast and flighty.
    Thanks in advance!

    Both are Easter Eggers, sometimes sold by the feed store as "Ameraucana," but they are not pure Ameraucana judging by their beards, muffs, and colors. So, they're gorgeous Easter Eggers. :)

    The top bird is likely a wheaten strained color, likely crossed to a brown red (although not pure color). The lower bird is a buff strained bird, but again, not a full buff. They don't have a "pure" color (at least a recognized American Poultry Association color) so you just would call them what they are closest to--for your own purposes.

    Both are cute!
