    Hi, and welcome to BYC!! :frow.

    Aww so cute!
    The "Ameraucana" is very likely an EE.

    What's in their water in the second to last pic?

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! What fabulous pics you have posted! Congratulations on them :D I too agree that it's likely to be an Easter egger. When it's a little older you could post some pics in the what breed gender section ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    Wishing you the very best of luck with your cuties in the future. Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Hi Silkiecuddles,

    I added electrolytes and probiotics for the first two weeks of their water feed, thus the coloring.
    One silkie arrived with pasty butt, so I just wanted to make sure they are okay for the next few days.

    Hi and :welcome to BYC I am glad you could join us. They are so cute I like what you did for there water for the first two weeks I do that to but for the first week I keep them on medicated feed and while I keep them on the feed they have electrolodes in there water. Then for two weeks. And they all stay happy and healthy.
