    ok people. I have no idea how you all know so much about chickens, but I really hope to learn a little from this site. I got my first dozen a few months ago which the first hen was from.... I was told she was an areacana (sp) but she doesn't look like it at all! The rest I just got from a neighbor and have no idea what they are, If you guys could let me know breed and egg color I would be MOST appreciative!

    Oh and I know the one rooster is a wyandotte but not sure about the second. Cool. Thanks guys!

    The first bird is an Easter egger. They're often mistakenly sold as Americana or Aracauna, but they don't meet the basic standards for either breed.
    Second bird looks like a crested Cream Legbar mix.
    Third bird could also be a CCL mix, or with that comb possibly a Polish mix. Is her comb V shaped, or just a wavy straight comb? Mixed with what, no idea, sorry.
    Fourth bird also a CCL mix, or a poorly bred CCL.
    I think your roosters are a CCL mix and a silver laced Wyandotte.
