    Got a few new hens. Wanted to know if you all had any guesses what kind they are, and what color eggs they will have. Im pretty sure they are all hens. Tell me if you see any different.

    Was told she was a bantam


    Then that these were bigger breeds but he wasnt sure which. OOOk lol



    Weve had this hen for awhile, but I just wanted to show her off. Also wondered what color eggs Giant Cochins laid?

    1 - Bantam - But I don't know what breed. Maybe she is a mutt?

    2 & 3 - They both look like mutts. I have a girl that looks like your #2 pictures. My girl is a White Leghorn Roo over a Produciton Red Hen. Not sure what color egg she will lay. The #3 definately had barring, but not a pure bred Barred because of the white in the wing area.

    This is my opinion and hopefully others will be along to give theirs.

    Oh -- From what I have seen, Cochins lay a shade of brown egg. I just got 5 Straight Run Cochin Chicks. We wills what they lay.

    I'm guessing that the 3rd one down is an EE, and with that pea comb she'll probably lay a blue or green egg.
