    Still doing my IDs... What are the small black and white hens in the picture? Also what color would you call the big cochin hen?
    All three birds are Jan 2010 from McMurry.

    Light Brahma! Very nice! And maybe Silver Lakenvelder for the little hens.

    The one with feathered feet is a Light Brahma. The other 2 b&w ones are Silver Lakenvelders.

    Im not sure what color they were as chicks. The bigger one was in the "feather footed assortment" and the others were from the "rare breed special." I ordered 25 of each so I can't remember which chicks grew up to be which, there were way to many colors!!

    Thanks for all of the information on these girls!
