    What breed are these three hens? They were sold to us as "Aracuana" chicks, but I don't think that is correct. They are all a little more than 5 months old.

    1. Pimple. Started laying in the past two weeks. Lays pale green eggs. She doesn't have a tuft of feathers on the side of her face?neck, that's just the way the photo makes her look!

    2. Princess. Not laying as far as we know. Four toes, pink ears.

    Princess' head closer up.

    3. Eddie. Not laying yet, as far as we know.

    I'd be curious to know what they are, if they're not Aracuanas!

    The pimple and Eddie are Easter eggers and princess is a cream leg bar or cream leg bar-cross. Hope this helps

    The first and third girls are Easter eggers and the second is most likely a cream legbar or cream legbar cross. Hope this helps!!

    They are Easter eggers. Definitely not araucanas, but beautiful nonetheless! Often times, EEs are labeled as araucanas or ameraucanas, especially when bought from a hatchery or farm supply/feed store. If you want real araucanas, I'd get them from a reputable breeder. Hope this helps!!
