    Well it is difficult to see, but I'm thinking gold laced wyandotte or maybe crossed with one. Take a fews more pics from the sied and front facing so I can see better detail. Congrats.

    Definitely mixed with something, it would help to see the face to know the shape and figure out what type of comb she has.

    Is there a possible they are Easter egger mix? Looking through the EE thread, there are some traits which are similar.

    Which traits are you seeing? The most common to look for are green legs, a beard, (fluffy cheeks and neck), a pea comb and blue/green eggs.

    Not sure either, but not gold laced Wyandotte alone.

    I don't see any wyandotte in those birds, the body type is way off. They look like barnyard mix, could have a variety of breeds in the background and are possibly second generation mixes as no one breed jumps out.
