    I'm not especially seeing the Easter egger part, but they do look like mixed breed birds.

    The pictures are a bit blurry and the chickens in question a bit far away from the camera to make a good determination on breed. maybe take closer up pics?

    I am thinking that the top one is a Rhode Island Red and the bottom an Easter egger. I will get better pictures later today.

    The bottom looks to have a beard- easter egger. The top is a mixed breed. Certaintly not an ameraucana, no slate legs, wrong comb, no beard and muffs, not a color of an ameraucana.
