Hi everyone!
We just got 2 new chicks at the local feed store and they said they think one is an Araucana and one a Welsummer? Any thoughts?

Both are Easter Eggers. Easter Eggers are basically mixed breeds (usually with Ameraucana in them) that lay colored eggs (blue, green, pink, etc.).
i don't know a lot about Easter eggers. Ok. I know nothing about them. Lol. Anything I should know?

Easter Eggers are hybrids produced by crossing blue egg layers with brown eggs layers to produce offspring that lay eggs in colors other than just blue (olive, green, beige, and sometimes pale pink). There is a good article at http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2011/09/ameraucana-easter-egger-or-araucana.html explaining the difference between Easter Eggers, Ameraucanas, and Araucanas.
