    Hi Denise
    They look like EEs (Easter Eggers) to me. In the future, you really just need to start a new thread in the "What Breed or Gender Is This?" section.

    Yes, they are Easter Eggers (EE's). You should get colored eggs from them.

    Quote:The breed is Easter Egger. Many hatcheries market them as Ameraucanas, Americanas, or Araucanas. But technically they are just Easter Egger chickens.
