    Hi all, a little ID help now that I've learned how to do the picture thing. These are from a McMurry Rainbow Layers mix (I've ID'd the Turkin, RIR, SSH, Buff Orp and Easter Eggers).

    This is Velma, she is feather footed and has a very short tail. I think she has a single comb, but it is much smaller than everone elses, nearly flat. She is big and sturdy.

    This is Crow, she is black, begining to get a little irridesent blue, with black legs and a single comb.

    This is Snowball, she is white with yellow legs and a single comb.

    This is Oliva (dark silver/gray) and Spangle (light silver/gray with a black feather or two), both have single combs and legs to match their coloring. They are large.

    The first pic is a light Brahma--they are great birds!

    The 3rd one down looks like a leghorn.

    Yep, that first one is a Light Brahma -Brahmas have feathered feet while Cochins have fully feathered legs and feet.

    Crow is probably an Australorp, but I'm not experienced with that breed to know for sure. And Snowball is likely a White Leghorn. Not sure about the last two, but they are pretty!
