    My mother in law recently picked these up for me and couldn't remember what breed she was told they were. The pictures are not real good so if you can't tell for sure just let me know and I'll try to get better pics. They are both bantams and the hen lays a nice light blue egg. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

    They look like Easter Eggers to me.

    Looks like a purdy pair of easter eggers. EEs have no standards, since they aren't really a breed, more of a mutt. Araucanas and Ameraucanas have defined standards.

    Bantam Easter Eggers or North American Quechua Bantams.
