    Ive had these bantam hens for almost 2 years now, and after all that time looking online to try and find what breed they are, id like to know if anybody knows exactly what they are. they are probably both mutts, but the gray one looks just like some pics of old english game hens ive seen...she lays light cream eggs.


    now this little black hen is interesting: heres her descrip.:
    -she has 5 toes on each foot, black skin, and 1 long spur
    -she has white earlobes and a small comb
    -she has a few feathers on her legs only, not feet
    -her feathers have a georgeous purple green sheen to them [​IMG]
    -she lays very tiny sky blue to mint green eggs
    Know what she is? im not sure. she looks like a jersy giant but i know she cant be obviously haha. or is there a bantam jg? HELP! [​IMG]


    look at the purple and green! so pretty! [​IMG]

    Sorry, can't help with an i.d. but they are both such pretty birds. That black one is really special. Extra pretty AND blue eggs? Some birds have it all!

    to have blue eggs, doesnt she have to be part Ameraucana?
  4. #1 reminds me of an old english game/OEG mix...very pretty
    #2 with the tail and the color of legs and eggs and the rose comb...i'd say some EE mix (ameracauna/easter egger) maybe EE/silkie even possibly? (i say silkie cause of feathers on leg and the 5 toes)
