    The third one might be and Easter Egger since it has a beard. I'm not sure about the other ones. With the third one if she is a purebred she is probably a Americana if she is a mix she is probably an easter egger. Are they all bantams?

    I am not sure. I bought these from Meyers Hatchery. I do not believe they are bantams, but I'm not sure. They are called Rainbow Pack Pullets and I bought 15 birds and they gaurantee 5 didn't breeds. These are the 3 that I don't know..

    The first one is going to be something like a Legbar mix or maybe a Swedish flower hen. I'm not familiar enough with either of those breeds to ID them at this juvenile stage. But that partial crest is what's making me think those breeds. It's not crested enough to be a Polish. Not sure if Meyer offers an Olive Egger, she could be something like that. Legs look like a greenish wash, but maybe white skin underneath? Hard to say from the pic. That one you may just have to be content and wait until she lays to see what's a good ID.

    Second bird looks like a partridge Cochin. She's going to be beautiful when she matures!

    Third looks like an Easter egger.

    Nice mix. When I ordered the rainbow pack, I got a ton of slw and production reds, not much variety overall [​IMG]
