    They are most likely EE. Many hatcheries misrepresent, and farm stores don't know at all what they are getting. Do they all have green/grey legs?

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! X2, if they are from a feed store they are almost certainly Easter Eggers.

    The darker colored chicks have grey legs while the lighter colored chicks have orange

    It's close to Easter, so easter eggers are very appropriate - welcome to the flock.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided join our flock. Your chicks are definitely Easter Eggers. You should get some nice colored eggs from them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your EEs.
