    Added fourth lady below:

    I bought these 3 ladies a couple of years ago from a gentleman who said they were araucanas...and that one was a welsummer...all ended up laying very light blue eggs, so I know I do not have a welsummer which I explained to the man...so then the guy tried to tell me she must be an ameraucana.

    After becoming a member on this site and reading about Easter Eggers (which I'd never heard of before), I am really wondering just what these girls are. All I know is that he bought 100's of eggs and hatched them..

    I am realizing more and more, that if a chicken LOOKS like a breed, people tend to call it by that name, even if its a mutt of some sort instead. I love my girls, mutts or not, but would love to be able to accurately state what they are, when speaking about them.

    Thanks for any help! I will try and get better pictures today if necessary (these pics are from this spring) The girls are very shy and skittish so its hard to get near them for good pics.





    This is pearl, she was one of my newer additions this summer, and so sweet compared to the other girls. She was given to me as an araucana.... Would that be correct, or is she an EE too?

    Thank you immensely for your time and knowledge!
