    Easter Eggers can have any color legs, not just willow. They have no standard since they are hatchery mutts, so they can be any color, lay any color, have any comb, etc.

    being in sicily i can assure you all these chickens are mutts lol. i picked them up at the garlic festival in st alfio sicily and have been raising them for "ouvo" or eggs [​IMG] and have been trying to ID them for 5 months now. i think it is safe to say 1 buff orp 1 RIR and 1 EE? thank you soo much.

    I don't see anything that looks even remotely like an Easter Egger. You say you know they are mutts, but you want us to tell you the breed.... Mutts are mixed breed chickens, so that's what they are. Not trying to be rude or mean, just trying to explain.

    That said, the red one could be a RIR cross. The buff one with black in her hackles looks more like a Buff Sussex. Do you have those there?
