what breed was my hen?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is Chip (whitest hen). Unfortunately she was eaten by a predator a few days ago and my other 2 hens who were the same breed but different colours were also eaten weeks ago (gold and brown hens with feathered heads). I want to know what type of bantam she was so I can get more babies at the end of the year and I would like to get more with the sleek feathered head and feathered feet. At the moment I have 1 surviving pekin bantam rooster (i think he is a pekin bantam - the one without a feathered head).

The hens are all silkie mixes. Mixed with what, I'm not sure. Could be Cochin (also called Pekins) since that's what the rooster is.

The color patterns make me think they might be part buff brahma?
