All 3 of them are Easter eggers? I was told Ameraucanas.
Yep, all three. The only hatchery that sells true Ameraucana is Meyer, and they only have Blue/Black/Splash. The only other source for true Ameraucana is from breeders, breeding to the breed standard. True Ameraucana are always sold specifying color. If a bird is sold as Ameraucana, without a specific color mentioned, then it's an Easter Egger.
Your girls also have greenish legs, which indicates yellow skin. It's a very common Easter Egger trait. True Ameraucana have white skin, and it's dominant.
Thank you so much! We are newbies to raising chickens, we have a total of 12. two black orpington. two white star, 5 red star. Two of the Hawk looking easter eggers and the brown Easter egger w/ gray face. We have just begun to receive small brown/ light tan eggs. Not sure who they are coming from!
They're all Easter Eggers.
Agree you have pretty Easter egger pullets.
I'd guess one of your Stars are the first layers.
Receiving 2 small brown eggs a day I thought would be the EE (because of the size). Or if it is the Red stars laying will the eggs get bigger?
Pullet eggs start small and gradually get bigger. It can take a few weeks or even months for eggs to get up to 'normal' size. They will also get bigger after each annual molt.
