    Our golden-colored hen’s most distinguishing feature is her blue ears and purple comb and wattles. Atop her head is a tuft of hair-like feathers. She has a small buttercup comb. Her shanks are silvery gray. And she seems to be broody. Her eggs are small and white.

    The brown hen has a short pea or rose comb type. She has a red comb and wattles. Ears are white with a very light tint of blue. She also has a little tuft it seems. She also has short legs. Her shanks are grayish black. The eggs are small-to-medium sized and light brown.

    They look like Silkie mixes to me.

    The top one is a Cream Brabanter and the bottom is a Gold Brabanter. They appear to be young birds.

    Thanks so much everyone. I thought maybe silkie, but I have no experience in this. Brabanter I never heard of, but after doing an image search on brabanters, it seems that's what mine are.

    Brabanters are rare in the US but there are a few breeders. They're lovely birds you have.

    I disagree and agree with the above, I think you have silkie mixes ...they don't resemble that rare breed to me at all
