    Of course being new I posted this in the wrong place, so here goes:
    Took the plunge, but knowing that we couldn't do new hatchlings I went for pullets. But the people I got them from weren't "sure" of breed (I guess they got a "mixed batch" of female 1 day olds). So the lady said the smallest (at top in the pic) is a Partridge Rock, but she didn't know about the black/brown one (medium sized and at the bottom). I got the big one (Ameraucauna) from a different person. So, if you experts have any thoughts I'd love it. I tried to look through pictures, but I just keep getting distracted by so many adorable birds!

    Thanks tamelroy. After poking around these forums a bit I kinda figured it was an EE. Which is ok with me since I'm not trying to show it (or breed it for that matter), just hoping for a variety of egg colors. Perhaps I will just wait for the other two to grow up and then try to figure them out (or maybe they're mutts which is fine and they'll fit right in around here).

    It would help if you posted a picture that showed them a bit better. And I agree, the middle one is an EE.

    The middle one is actually an Easter Egger, not an Ameraucana. the one on the bottom we'd need better pics for, but it could also be an EE.
