I typically only have an interest in utility breeds, birds that would do well in eggs and/or meat in my climate and wouldn't give me too much trouble personality wise, so I am not very familiar with ornamental or rare-ish breeds at all. I picked up these girls from someone who couldn't keep them anymore last week, and I'd like to know what they are so I can better judge if they are healthy (weight wise, as most seem a little scrawny under their feathers). They are molting, which is compounding my ID problems. I could use some help. I'll put each group of pics in their own post to keep things clear. Chicken #1: Of what I know of the breed, she might be a cochin? She has a beautiful beetle-shine in greens and purples on the black feathers, and she's pretty large compared to the others.
