    One is gray, has an oddly long tail, and seems to be barred, with yellow feet and a couple dark scales. The other is gray with a tuft on her head, with gray/green feet. They should be Olive Eggers, Saphire Eggers, Bluebell Eggers and there may have been another breed that I’m not remembering...here’s the pics, any ideas?

    Olive Eggers, Sapphire Eggers, and Bluebell Eggers are all crossbred/hybrids. So there is no telling how they "should" look exactly. You'll have to wait until they start laying to know exactly what you have.

    Ok thanks. What colored eggs do those breeds have so I’ll know?

    Additionally, I dont' see any barring here. But I have to agree with @Gray Farms those are hybrids and not breeds, so there's no specific 'look' to them.
