    I'm thinking Cochin and Ameraucana. Second guess is a Feather-Footed Marans of some sort and Ameraucana. What I can't tell, tho, is if it's black or blue! I affectionately call this chick Miss Pimp Pants. I do think it's a she, too.

    Looks like light feathering on the legs so my guess is Marans over something (could be Ameraucana or Easter Egger) or something else.

    Cochin or Brahma cross. From what I've seen, when you cross a feather-legged marans- the offspring don't have that much leg feathering. What kind of comb does it have?

    If it has a pea comb I think its a Brahma if its has a straight comb my thought is that it is a Black Langshan.

    If it has a beard AND a pea comb then I'm more inclined to think Ameraucana/EE as one half. The other half I guess Cochin.
