    I agree--all appear to be Easter Eggers. Bonus: with your Barred Rock hens, any chicks hatched would be sex-linked.

    Nice, I did find a few of them to have that "ameracauna" look to them :) I'm more partial to the top one running on the snow or the one on the branch that's tri coloured. I think they look neat. Thanks guys! I'm happy to be apart of this backyard chicken site. As I just started my first flock last summer. :)

    I'd pick whichever is friendliest, an aggressive rooster will produce aggressive sons.

    Okay Dan, noted. I've only had them a couple days. So far they seem decent, and I can go near them but they might act differently with my hens around. I'm scared of some of their Spurs. But I've seen you can remove them easy and painfree as possible. Which I don't know if I'll even try lol

    They're all Easter Eggers (Ameraucana mixes).
