    These guys came to me as Ameraucanas, but I'm not sure I believe that. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!

    Hopefully these pictures show up...

    Don't know but the one in the second picture on the right looks just like my EE pullet.

    Ok, that basically means they're mutts, right? LOL The girls are just now 5 months old and no eggs yet, so I don't know what color I'll get. It doesn't really matter since I didn't pay for them, but I was curious. Thanks for the info!

    I would say EE's as well. Yes, basically mutts, but my little EE hen is the sweetest hen I have left.

    Your roo is stunning. He could make some beautiful babies with your girls. [​IMG]

    Mangled and Teresa -

    Thanks so much for the compliments. I'm maybe going to hatch some of the eggs later on when the girls get a little older just to see what I get. You can have some if you like!

    Teresa - I like that you have the Silkies. That's the other breed I have, although only 1 hen and 2 chicks about 4 weeks old right now...more eventually!

    You are definitely welcome to some eggs (if I ever get any). I'm not sure how long to wait after they start laying to make sure they're fertile, but then I can always ship you some. I'm assuming that you don't live near me...
