What do I call them? Easter Egger? Barnyard Mix? Orpington Cross?

    These chicks are just under 9 weeks in these pictures. Possible dads are Easter Egger or Black Orpington. Mom's are Orpingtons, EEs, white layer mixes, or rir/comets. My question is, what do I call them? Parentage might be 100% EE or 100% Orpington or some combo. Photos to follow.

    The bearded could safely be called EE mix - technically, even if they were EExEE they'd still be "EE mix" - anything showing no EE characteristics at all I would simply call barnyard mix.
