    OK,
    There not EE's (in fact I see nothing that look EE about them)
    They all look to be Old English Game Bantams..

    In the first picture-
    The Silver hen in the back is a Silver Quill OEGB (row 9 on left) http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/Games/GameBantams/BRKOEGBantams2.html

    And
    the hen in front might be a Quill/ Red Quill OEGB cross

    The Black and White one in the 3rd. picture is a Mottled OEGB

    Thank you everyone I think Chris09 is right yet I do know that the silver one in the first pic is a for sure mix of I am going to say EE he said Ameraucana and was hatched from a blue egg. Personally I think they are cute and they are so small that I could not say no and they were cheap so my husband could not yell at me for getting more chickens. [​IMG]

    I'll throw in my two cents:
    Looks like you may have a campine, and golden laced wyandottes? I'm no expert, just been staring a lots of chicken pictures lately, lol, trying to pick out which breeds I wanted. [​IMG]

    Yeah we thought the silver one looked campine too because we already have 2 lol and I have one SLW and GLW in the brooder but none in my coop and run yet regardless on the breed they are all bantams so my husband can't make me sell them lol But I am especially happy to have the ones in the 6th picture they are in others but that is one that is only them together they are the smallest ones and can you believe that the hen has the bigger comb I thought that was funny.
