    i have a group of 6 chickens, all between 6 and 12 months old.
    they are bantam size i think (a bit bigger than my cochin bantams) with a strange comb (its flat and long and flicks up at the back in a point)

    they lay rather large eggs for such a small chicken! lovely and colourful, and quite friendly...any idea what they are or what they've been crossed with?? there is 2 the same, one white, one a multi coloured like the first two but darker colours (and a single comb), a brown one and a roo (but his comb is a rose or pea comb i think) and...they go broody quicker than a silkie! if you leave 2 eggs for more than a few hours, one of the girls will be on it in a flash!

    Those strange combs are called rose.
    Looks like they might have some wyandotte in them. Your rooster is an EE ( if you didn't know).

    What color eggs do the girls lay? If they're green or greenish, then the hens have Easter Egger in them (although you probably know that already). That could also explain the colors over back and belly (although so could a bunch of other breeds!). But I'm with farmerChef: Wyandotte is very likely part of the mix. They're cute little things!

    Whatever they are, they're good looking chickens! You are doing a great job with them.

    they all lay different colour eggs! one lays a blue egg, another a white egg, the others lay a light brown coloured egg. most have pink or grey legs but one has yellow legs

    Maybe dorking mixes, but they aren't pure.

    well they sure are pretty. I really wanted dorkings and would be satisfied with an unpure, of course I don't know if you would Splish.
