    From someone whose neighbor turned him in because he wasn't supposed to have them where he lived but he didn't have a clue what kind they are... just that they came from the feed store. I'm still pretty new to this and was completely wrong on my last guess so I thought I'd ask you guys again. I got 3 different breeds and one was a bearded silkie. Here's pics of the other 2.

    The brown one looks like an EE



    Easter Eggers

    The Easter Egger is not really a breed. They are relationed to the breeds Ameraucanas and Araucanas, then bred with many different breeds so they no longer fit either breed's standards. They usually have muffs & pea combs, but come in nearly every variety and color, some even have ear tufts or are rumpless. Each EE is different, but overall they are usually a smaller bird that lays pink, green, or blue eggs. They are normally friendly and calm, and their colorful eggs make them a popular choice in backyard flocks. {C}

    White Plymouth Rock

    White Plymouth Rocks are a fairly easy-to-find breed of chicken. They have yellow neck/head as chicks, but then "turn" white when they feather as adolescent / adults. White Plymouth Rocks are flighty and don't like being picked up. They are good layers, and their eggs are light/med brown colored.
