    Do they have feathered feet?

    If so they are cochins. If not they are either orps or may be plymouth rocks.

    Those are Orps. I have blue rocks, orps & cochins- and they all have different shapes. Those are some nice fluffy girls! And the roo is round- as should be.

    Thanks. No feathered legs. They are really beautiful. I've never realized how beautiful they are!

    Oh my gosh- those got me all excited. I have an 8 week old blue Orp- child of Speckledhen's Suede and Smokey- I haven't seen that many of them, so it's nice to see more of those gorgeous things!!!! What beautiful birds!

    These orps are not from a member on this board. But I have to say that SpeckledHen is THE go-to person for Orps or Orp crosses. I'm sure yours will be drop dead gorgeous!

    Those are actually nicer-looking hens that my Smoky is, much fluffier. Dusty is better looking than Smoky, but my jewel, my Skye, died recently. She was really typey. With Suede, Smoky and Dusty do produce some beautiful kids.
