    My husband brought these ladies home the other day and I would like to know what breeds they are. I think one is an Easter Egger, but not sure on the other 2. Thanks!

    Speckles legs are more gray, compared to Henny's. You can see then in the group shot or the background of Henny's pic.

    I would say the two, Henny and Speckles have at least some EE in them. They all seem to be crosses except maybe the Turken.

    They look like barnyard crosses with some Easter Egger and maybe some Rhode Island Red influence. The naked neck one is obviously a Naked Neck (aka Turken). Speckles is looking rather rooster-ish.

    if it wil make you happier, ive heard that the slate colored legs mean they carry the blue egg gene

    Thanks for the replies. I was wondering if speckles was a rooster, but the guy thought they were all hens. It doesn't matter to me either way. The kids want at least one that cock-a-doodle doos [​IMG]
