    Where did you get them? The first two look like possible mixed breeds.

    I bought them at our local auction. I thought 'mixed breed' meant a variety. I gather this is not the case?

    Mixed breed normally means their parents where to different breeds.

    Thanks Chicken Girl. I hope they will still give me eggs when they get older. I think they are only about 4-5 months old.

    Mixed breeds can lay eggs as well (some lay better then heritage breeds). The black one with the white earlobe should lay white eggs for you and the other two will most likely lay brown.
