    We where watching these guts for a friend, they left now but the breed is unknown. They have poofy cheeks if you can't tell. This is the best pic I have of them, sorry for quality.

    Easter Egger, hatcheries/feed stores often sell them as Ameraucana. They should lay blue/green eggs.

    Looks like an Easter Egger, which is a mixed breed of chicken that lays colored eggs (usuall green, blue, or pink). EE's can be almost any color, and have varying features (different combs, muffs/beards, etc.) Most hatcheries sell Easter Eggers as "Ameraucanas", but the Ameraucana is a pure-breed with a set number of color varieties and features.

    She's an Easter Egger, which hatcheries usually sell as Araucanas/Americanas. Pretty bird! She likely lays green or blue eggs.
