    We were supposed to have 7 Australorps and 2 Ameracuanas. I think we have only 5 Australorps and 2 Ameracuanas and maybe 2 Silver Laced Wyandotte but figured why not ask the experts (aka you) as we are new to this.

    Look at the black and white one, the brown one we believe is the ameracuana.

    With those greenish legs and that pea comb, the black and white one is an Easter Egger as well.

    P.S. I should qualify this statement a bit. Neither of the birds in you picture are true Ameraucanas which have slate blue legs. Hatcheries and feed stores often inaccurately sell Easter Eggers under the labels Ameraucana or Araucana but they are actually hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown eggs layers to produce offspring that lay eggs in colors other than just blue.

    Both the black and white one and the brown one look like Easter Eggers to me, too.

    Thank you all. Now is the waiting game of them laying eggs. I know we have a while! I do love watching them though they are so fun and full of personality
