    Bought these brown chicks as Ameruacanas a few days ago, a friend mentioned they were likely something else but could not remember the term.

    Any ideas?

    Also, the two yellows were binned as Cinnamon Queen.

    Probably Easter eggers.

    What I see from hatcheries are all Easter Eggers,
    What I get from hatches from them is certainly EEs, with the RIR and White Leghorn showing through.

    The yellow chicks that are supposed to be cinnamon Queens have bright yellow / orange legs.

    The brown ones have very dull colored legs almost a duller yellowish brown.

    Easter Egger most likely.

    While there are a couple hatcheries that indeed do offer the real thing, your cute little babies are EEs. :)

    Thanks everyone, we do not mind at all that they are EE's instead!

    But a bit worried they may be roosters since they were mislabeled breed wise.

    All of them were labeled as hens, when will we know for sure?!

    Easter eggers are often labeled as Ameraucana because Ameraucana are purebred, and Easter eggers are mixes. Plus many who don't know breeds think they are one and the same. Nothing wrong with EE, they often lay more than Ameraucana, and come in a rainbow of colors.
