    I have 2- 21 week old pullets that I am wondering if anyone can tell me what they are? I bought them as day olds and the guy said they were suppose to both be Marans. I don't believe either are Marans. The blue/grey one has feathers on its feet. No eggs laid yet but the golden colored one has started squatting.

    Thanks!

    It looks like the blue one is a Brahma. Not 100% though. And the other 2 look like Easter Eggers.

    The buff and white look like easter eggers. The blue might be an Easter egger/ marans cross since it has a pea comb and feathered legs.

    The hen that is brown with yellow and black mane in the third pic is also a easter Egger.

    Here is a full body photo of the grey one[​IMG]


    She is a very large bird. Almost a heritage breed size.

    Thanks everyone! Looks like I have a full flock of EE's then! Guess I will have a colorful basket depending on what they are all mixed with!
