    I would guess your second one (first rooster) is maybe an Araucana. It has a lot of the same markings as mine, but mine are a bit younger than your's too.





    Yep.

    #2 - not an araucana by any means. Hatcheries advertise easter eggers (EEs) as araucana/ameraucana - any perusing of this forum will educate you as to why they're not. Also NOT a rose comb! That is a single comb if I ever saw one. Also inclined to say not an EE because of this comb.

    I agree with the girl, boy, girl, boy.

    Yes, pullet, cockerel, pullet, cockerel. I would say you have a Production Red, a Sicilian Buttercup, a Barred Rock, and a White Cochin.
