    I'm not sure what i've got here. The black ones were sold as Amerucana pullets, and the fluffy cheeked one came out of the "rainbow layer" bin at orshelns. I've got two, one just slightly brown-er than the other. I appreciate the help!

    Did you buy them all at the farm store? I doubt they have pure Ameraucanas, because they would have to sell them for a lot more $ than they typically sell chicks. You could have some Australorps there? And, I bet the fluffy faced one is an Easter Egger, sometimes mistaken for an Ameraucana. She might lay a green egg for you!

    They did all come from the farm store. The black ones were both all black a week ago; now one is greying out under the neck and wings, but their builds are still the same. They are leggier and leaner than the ones sold to me as rainbow layers and RIR.
