    My Rooster was a White Silkie.

    My hens are:
    Orpington x2
    Easter Egger (Partridge) x2
    Blue-Laced Red Wyandotte x Ameraucana cross (Blue Red, faint lacing)
    ^above x Barred Rock (Blue, faint lacing, faint barring)

    I had 5 chicks from my test run hatching, a mix of eggs from the coop. I'd love to know which hen produced which chicks, though I think I may have that mostly sorted out... two from the EEs, two from the Wy/Amer/Rock cross, but that last whiteish one.... no idea!

    I'd also love to know what these colors would be called, officially.

    They produced these chicks -
    (P.S. - ignore the Marans pullet.)

    AmerIcanas, maybe. They don't even remotely look like Ameraucanas, however, and the OP said they were mixed breed.

    OP, I don't think they are any official color. They are mixed breed color.

    They could pass for closer to UK Araucanas :)

    But no they are not.

    No Set colouring. They are pretty!

    Hey look! You have a faint barred blue girl like me :)

    This is Tina. Her mama is a Blue Silkie and her father was a Wyandotte X Barred Rock

    The light coloured ones I am guessing are your Blue Laced Wyandotte crosses. I've created a similar cross with Buff Laced Polish x Silkie.

    PS: Find it very cool all your test hatch turned out to be pullets!

    I do know they are mix colors - but, what I meant is - well, they have color genetics just like the purebreeds, so their colors must have names. Even if it's ' barred blue laced partridge' or other combinations.
