    I was given this hen with the Brahma in the pic but no one has any idea what type of chicken she is. She is pretty skittish, blind in one eye, so I can't get a better pic.

    She is white with a dusting of gray on her feathers from her waist back. Single up right comb kinda small and triangular. White beak, white legs. Either her (Winky) or the Brahma is laying a off white lg egg.

    Your pictures are too blurry. For breed ID photos, they need to be pretty crisp and clear. Take your time and be patient when taking pictures. If you are taking picture with a phone, a lot of times they end up too blurry and pixelated to see any sort of detail.

    Better pics could clarify but from what I can see you have two mixed breed hens.

    Thanks anyway for taking a look. Yes it was my phone lol I had it zoomed in as far as it would go, they just wont get close at all. They were kinda feral when I got them so I will just keep them happy.

    I agree they're mixed breed birds. But hey, if they're laying, you're one up on me at the moment!

    Thanks :) I know one of them is laying because there is a new egg every couple of days that is almost white. All my other ladies lay browns. One EE lays blue, but the other EE that lays a sage green egg hasn't laid in a couple weeks :( so I'll take the extra!
