Hm, then you could have some Wheaten Ameraucanas (pics 1-3) and a Blue Ameraucana (4th pic down)--though I am surprised to see purebred Ameraucanas as it's not common to receive these even from breeders--, some red stars (from what I see of the red ones in the bottom pic), and maybe an Australorp (the black one in the bottom pic). Those are just my guesses, maybe others will chime in!

I picked them out thinking maybe they were red/black stars but as they grow Im beginning to wonder. Not that it matters...Im just curious! The ones in the bottom pic are the same ones in the first three..there backs are very red but there wings look like wheaten ameraucanas? Thanks for your help! :0)

Hm, then I think you're right, too red for Wheaten Ameraucanas. A lot of red sex links or production reds will feather in that light color and then later get darker, I'm just thrown off by the combs. They're cute regardless
