    5 toes...Faverolle. They come in both of those color varieties so I think Faverolle is a safe bet.

    I think the white one is a favorelle.....red one is a cochin. Cochin should not have extra toes.......but apparently it does!

    The first one looks like a white faverolles bantam to me she has some salmon casting which is normal in most white faverolles hens that are't silver gene whites. The 2nd one is not a faverolles or a d'uccle I agree it looks like a cochin with an extra toe.

    I like the white fav hen actually she has a nice 3 part beard that is in the faverolles standard. You should get a boyfriend for her [​IMG] come visit the faverolles thread there are some white bantam fav breeder on there.
