please help me identify our hens

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi :-) I'm hoping you could help me identify our 3 white hens. We got them when they were about 1 year old. We were thinking maybe leghorns but I'm not sure because mine lay light brown colored eggs, and their legs are whitish instead of yellow. They're very vocal, curious, and they can be really sweet. Any help would be appreciated!

I'm thinking bare legged White Marans like those sold by Meyer Hatchery.

I am curious to find out as well.   Leghorns are known for white eggs for sure.    Maybe white sussex. but it is only a guess. 

And :welcome

Thanks everyone for the quick replies smile.png We're new to having pet chickens, so I wasn't familiar with marans or sussex, but the more research I do - the more I see the similarities! I definitely think they are marans. Good to know, and thanks again!
