    The black and white hens I'm pretty sure are Silver-laced Wyandottes and the white are Delawares I was told...but are the other two Ameracaunas?

    I would agree with Delaware and SLW, but I do not think the other 2 are Americana as the one shows yellow legs and I can not tell on the other. Might help to have a picture of those two facing the camera and standing still. Gorgeous birds though.

    They're not Ameraucanas. If they lay green or blue eggs they're Easter eggers, if not they're mixed breed hens.

    Thanks donrae, somebody told me they might be Easter eggers instead, so it looks like I may have to wait a few weeks before they lay their first egg. Do you know if it is commom for their first egg to be a different color than it normally would be?

    You are correct on the first 4 hens you mentioned. But the other are not ameraucana. They don't even look like easter eggers to me. Just some barnyard mixes. Probably some easter eggers mixed in somewhere, but I doubt they will lay colored eggs. The color they is the color they lay. It may darken or alighten a bit. But they aren't going to lay white then green and so on.

    Thanks for the info CCCCCCCCHICKENS. I look forward to the eggs regardless of the color or type hen. They're pets that happen to give prizes...lol.
