    The first one looks like a lohmann brown or something... A hybrid/batteri chicken (production red or what are you call them here in BYC?).

    The second one... We dont have ameraucanas here in Sweden so I cant say if she's a so called easter egger or an ameraucana.

    The first almost looks like a red sex link. I have two of those and my girl looks like you except her comb is smaller...

    the first one also looks like a red sex link to me. The second one is probably an easter egger. Does she lay yet, and if so, are they green? I'd say EE then.

    she looks like she could be an ameraucana, silver duckwing? look at how full her beard and muffs are and she has slate legs. I'm not thinkin EE for this one

    Dawn's (grey legs) eggs are always light tan, almost stone, and relatively large. Shiny (red) lays brown, smaller, more rounded eggs. Both average 1 a day up unitl recently, winter and rain have slowed production. We live in the city and they run around my back yard all day. My daughter loves them!

    Production Red and the second one is an Easter Egger for sure if she lays brown eggs. Real Ameraucanas only lay blue.
