    This Early Summer, me and my girl got these Chickens, three of them are Ameraucanas the other two, I don't know what they are but one of them is have the size than the Ameraucanas, the other one is even smaller! Poor things are the ugliest things I've ever seen, I'm just curious as to what they are. Any One?

    They look like they may be Dark Cornish.

    I thought the Dark Cornish is supposed to be a large bird, these are tiny.

    Bantam Cornish are pretty popular, hatcheries like Ideal carry them.

    X2 and the otheres in the pics are easter eggers not ameraucanas. Hatcheries and farm stores mislabel them a lot

    Appear to be Cornish. If they are small, they are bantam Cornish. As for your Ameraucanas, they are actually Easter Eggers. Easter Eggers are often mistakenly called "Americanas" or "Araucana/Ameraucanas" by hatcheries. Generally, if you don't get Ameraucanas from a breeder, they are Easter Eggers. True Ameraucanas only come in about six different color patterns, have certain characteristics, and lay blue eggs.
