    I have 3 blue standard chickens. 2 pullets and a rooster. I'm not sure what breed they are, any ideas? I can try to get new pictures this weekend. The male has the most feathering on his legs. One pullet has no feathering and the other a little. [​IMG]

    They look like Blue Langshans to me.

    I'd be more willing to say blue or blue copper (copper just hasn't showed up yet) marans since on seems to be almost clean legged and the tails are pretty low. Do you know what color of egg, light brown, dark brown?

    OK thanks. I'm not sure what colour of an egg they hatched from.

    My thought as well. Also (it could just be that they're cowering), but they seem to lack the taller, rangier look of Langshan pullets as well.

    I'm also inclined toward marans.

    I'd vote Marans as well.

    They still look like Blue Marans to me.
