They are all 7 weeks old (almost 8). A lot of different people have told me different things about what breed my chickens are. I got them from a store that got them from a hatchery. They are supposed to be 2 americans, 1 dark brahma, and 1 barred rock, but they are definitely not what the hatchey said they where. I need some help with what breed they are.

My little sweet girl is supposed to be a barred rock, I think she is but I am just checking. She is sweet and has a very hen like personality. She is a great chicken and has a huge personality. :)
Mona:

Olive:
She is a sweet pea, a huge big ball of love, she loves her family and she is supposed to be a dark brahma.

The sweetest chicken in the whole wide world, she is so sweet and sit on you right when you pick her up, she resently has sour crop and is now walking around happy. She LOVES treats. She is supposed to be a americana.

Luna:
The crazy but sweet girl. She runs around like crazy when we try to pick her up and when you do pick her up, she is amazing, she sits on you and lets me pet her!

To be honest, they do appear to be the breeds that the hatchery labelled them as. The last two are generally known as Easter Eggers though some hatcheries do call them Americanas (not to be confused with Araucanas or Ameraucanas.)

X2. They are what you paid for.
So the dark brahma is really a dark brahma, her coloring is all off, I was told that Mona was a silver penciled rock, and Olive was a easter egger.

How is her colouring incorrect? If you get better pics of her comb and her legs you'll be able to tell if she's a dark brahma or a SPR. Her head appeared Brahma-esque in shape to me, though that does admittedly vary by line.

Oh, I see your confusion. Ok: Betty is a Barred Rock, Mona is the Dark Brahma, Olive is an EE, and Luna is also an EE.
