    I know they are 5-6 months old females, just wanted to know if they are Ameraucaunas or not? I can not find a specific breed picture that looks like these. Any help would be much appreciated. I am getting blue/green eggs from them.

    Thanks!

    They look like some type of mix with EE.

    I believe that they are a silver laced breed crossed with something else. The one in the second pic is a rooster.

    edited to add: They might be considered Ameraucanas/ Araucanas if you aren't from the USA. I think some overseas have those crests, but I don't know anything about standard colors. Here they would be called Easter Eggers.

    Well, that is news to me!!! I wondered why she/he was so agressive and dominant over the others. I was told that these were both females. I wondered why one looked smaller and less fluffy headed if they were both females, same age, same type of chicken.

    You really think the second one is a rooster? I am not happy. I just figured it was a dominant female, he does crow every morning, however, they are NOT early risers. [​IMG] I am glad about that.

    Well, more interesting developments. The soup thickens.

    I agree on a mix. And I agree, the 2nd one is definitely a roo.
