    The black and white hen is an Easter Egger or Americauna, I'm not sure about the rooster.

    The cockerel is mixed. Well, so is the EE pullet! All EE's are mixed.

    Keep in mind, EE and ameraucana are two different things. One is a mix breed, the other is a full recognized breed, and they shouldn't be thought of as interchangeable.

    They are crossbreds. The pullet may or may not have Easter Egger in her. Its possible to breed a bird that looks like that without using Easter Egger or Ameraucana at all.
