What breed do you think these are. They lay blue eggs (we were told when we bought them)

Also they are now 11 weeks old and in an Elgu go and I wondered if when it rains in the day do you leave their door open or close it to keep them warm?

Thanks in advance!

I would say Easter Egger. They look mix breeded. Araucanas should be tufted and rumpless while Ameraucanas should muffed and bearded. Since you have no beard and have a rump I would say Easter Egger. Which is fine also, I have one. They are mixed breed chickens, bred to give blue green eggs.

Oh forgot to add, always leave the door open during the day so they can go in and get out of the rain/sun.

I have an Egloo for my younger birds and yes, keep the door open for them. They will go inside and huddle together if they get cold.

Those are the UK type Ameraucanas

US Ameraucanas have a different look, and lack the crest.

Ameraucanas in Australia have a crest like the UK ones.
