    We have five chicks about three weeks old, bought at the feed store who told us they were Araucana's which I don't think they are. It doesn't really matter too much to us what breed they are but I am VERY curious. I am new to chicken keeping so any thought you all might have as to what we've got would be great. Sorry for poor picture quality---my camera is on the fritz.
    Thanks!

    I see tails. True Araucanas are rumpless, meaning they don't have a tail. So I would say Easter Eggers. Maybe Ameracauna but I doubt it. They came from a feedstore and from a hatchery that sells chickens that lay colored eggs as Ameracauna/Aracuana....

    They look just like my EE's looked at that age.

    It looks like a couple of them have legs turning green, too.

    Thanks so much for the responses!

    I bought some "Ameraucana" chicks from the local feed store, and they look the same as yours with the various coloring etc.
