    I know the silks, and the sizzles, but i've just recently became a little unsure of my rooster and my hens so I need some professional help!

    Also, can anyone tell me what my Sassy (The pure white one) might be?!

    It would be much appreciated! [​IMG]

    The white one looks like an americana or a white plymouth rock. Your black and white ones look like barred plymouth rock.

    Thank you so much! I just looked up Ameraucana and she looks just like the white hens! :) I REALLY appreciate your answer! When I got her, she was the only chick that looked different and I had a feeling she got mixed up ..

    Where did you source her from? Without being able to see her legs, it is impossible to say for certain that she is an Ameraucana, as many birds represented as such are actually Easter Eggers which, yes, do come in solid colors such as white. Ameraucanas are not all that common and unless sourced from a breeder specifically not something one just comes by having. There are very few hatcheries that actually deal in true Ameraucana and none of those that do deal in white.

    I will try and get a picture today, she lays greenish blue eggs. Perhaps that could help?

    That helps a lot - greenish blue eggs points to EE rather than Ameraucana.

    Great! [​IMG] When I originally bought her, they were selling their chicks as "banny hens" exact wording on the sign.

    I just love her, and hand raised her. She is so sassy and pretty much is the boss of the flock. Even over the roosters.. LOL

    I do have to point out though that she has only laid a egg that was slightly different colored, her eggs recently have been a tan normal color. She rarely lays though to begin with. But is it safe to assume she is EE?

    Have you actually witnessed the tan eggs being expelled by this hen or only seen her in a nest with tan eggs and made the assumption that she laid the egg? I ask because hens don't lay colored eggs one day and brown/tan eggs the next.
