    Thanks everyone! I was thinking both pullets too! Not sure they are EE or not. They were sold to us as Auracana from the feed store but I know that they are most likely some kind of mix. I have one other and her cheeks are fluffy and she has that "partridge" coloring. (See avatar that's my Fancy). What breed were you thinking?

    Easter Eggers are frequently marketed by hatcheries as either Araucanas or Ameraucanas (often misspelled as Americana or Americauna), but they are actually hybrid crosses between either Araucanas or Ameraucanas (both of which lay only blue eggs) and other breeds to produce offspring that lay eggs in colors other than just blue (olive, green beige, or even pale pink or gold). There is a good article explaining the difference between Araucanas, Ameraucanas, and Easter Eggers at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html.
