    Might be a silver leg horn. If you know if the bird is a hen what color eggs does the bird lay?

    Does that first one have feathered legs? Could be a Dark Brahma. Definitely female, and somewhere between 12 to 16 weeks old. Need a better shot of the second one, both of the posted photos are too blurry.

    It's not a Silver Leghorn with those slate legs as Leghorns have yellow legs. The legs don't look to have any feathers on them either (at least not that I can see) which would also rule out a Dark Brahma.

    First one may be a Birchen Marans. I'm not sure about the second one, though.

    And the first one has very lightly feathered legs. Nothing compared to a cochin or brahma though

    Mixed breed pullets, most likely. Where did they come from?
