    Without a full shot including legs, I can't be sure. But that beak looks pale, so I'm guessing white skin/legs, and those earlobes are red. My guess is White Orpington.

    Yes white/gray legs, this hen was completely black when I got her at two days old and lays brown (almost white) eggs.

    White Orpingtons are recessive white, so it's entirely possible that this bird was dark as a chick.

    Are there feathers on the legs? Or feet? Second bird in the first picture looks like a whites out light brahma but brahmas have feathers on their feet and legs

    Brahmas have pea combs and yellow skin.
