    2 are Prairie Bluebell Eggers and 2 are Sapphire Gems. I just don't know which one is which. Anyone familiar with either breed?

    Not sure about the "Sappire Gems," but the "Praire Bluebell Eggers" are just an Ameraucana (or possibly EE) cross, and I'm assuming the Sappires are the same. So, it'll be really hard to tell the difference, sorry. :idunno

    That's what I thought. I guess time may tell, but who knows. I have tried to research them more, but I am having a hard time finding information on either. Thank you! We also have 3 Ameraucana's and 2 Silver Laced Wyandotte's the same age as these 4 ladies. Ordered 8 and got 9 ‍♀️

    Yes and thank you, I am obsessed. We also have 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte, 1 Barred Plymouth Rock, and 2 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes that are a few weeks older.

    Hoover’s Hatchery sells both of those and based on your photos, the lightest ones are Sapphire Gems, and the darker two are Prairie Bluebells. But the bluebells can come in varying colors so of light to dark so it’s hard to say. Here are photos from their site:

    Adorable chicks by the way! They grow so fast. Can’t believe mine looked like that only a few weeks ago.
