    Im not to sure but the first one is very nice [​IMG] Let me know if you get tired of her. [​IMG]
    maybe a snowy cross or silver apple cross would be my guess

    When you say you are trying to work out the brown hen do you mean the one swimming in the pool? She looks Apricot to me.

    But maybe you mean the one in the first pic [​IMG]

    the one in the first pic i was told is a snowy .
    and the other just keeps changing color on me, but i finally think she has her adult color.​

    In that case my guess for the one in the pond is Apricot [​IMG] Or it might be called Pastel in Calls.
