    We are new at this, and need help identifying our hens. We just recently purchased the three striped (Coco, Peppermint & Patty) hens shown on these pics. Coco is brown, Peppermint is the darkest one and has what looks like iridescent blue and teal feathers on her. We've had them for over 2 weeks now and are still waiting for eggs. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!

    They look like Barred Rocks to me, or possibly poor quality Dominiques, since I think I see a rough rose comb on one of them. It looks like they're close to laying!

    I agree that the comb on one of them looks funky, like it might be a rough rose comb. I'm wondering if they might be BA x Dominique crosses.
