    I think the 4 white/mix colored bantams are americans they have the same face, the 2 laying down I thought might be New hampshire reds, but not sure either it really does not matter I have no roo's but would still like to know in case I want to start breeding

    It is hard to see in the pictures, but the lighter cream colored ones are probably EEs (Easter Eggers) since they lay blue/green eggs. I am not sure about the red ones.

    Just FYI: I doubt they are Ameraucana's since the true pure breds are rare and you'd have to go through a breeder to get them. The "Ameraucana/Arauacana"s that the hatcheries sell are easter eggers (mutts with some ameraucana blood that lay easter egg colored eggs).

    I would say the white ones are EasterEggers (NOT ameraucanas, they arent truly white from what I can see in the photos, and do not look like any color ameraucanas come in.)

    I have no clue about the other, as I am not very familiar with bantams.

    The one are defenitly "Ameraucanas" they are Easter Eggers. Easter Eggers are Ameraucanas but they can lay any color egg. You have Easter Eggers. As for the others they look like Red Sexlinks.

    Quote:Woah..wait,wait,wait..Ameraucanas and Easter Eggers are not the same thing. There has been much discussion about this in the breeds section.
    See the sticky at the top.
    I vote for EE.

    Could be salmon favorelles too, especially with them all being the same color.
