    Short version of the story.... This is my first flock of chickens. I know nothing about breeds. I more-or-less inherited these, so I do not know what they are! I was told they were sold as RIRs and Ameraucanas... Can anyone help me clear this up??? Thank you so much in advance!!!

    I'm especially curious about this interestingly colored lady....

    Please excuse the liquified layer feed. I had just dumped it out bc we had a big, blowing rain.
    I assume the roos here are RIRs?? Not sure about the ladies, but I like the blue color on the back one!

    Mixed breeds. Possibly with some Easter Egger. The boys look like Rhode Island Red mixes.
