    Hi fellow chicken lovers

    I received 3 of these beauties about 2 months ago and have not been able to answer the question "what breed are they?" Can someone please help me identify them? They have grown some, are very fluffy around their bottoms and have feathery legs. I was told they were 5 months when I got them but I suspect they were not since I have not gotten any eggs from them yet... [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6290305774/

    I think they are Splash Faverolles. With the feathered legs and the muffs, that rules out Brahmas and Cochins.

    Google search on Splash Faverolles.. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=splash+faverolles&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=2434l6579l0l7616l17l14l0l0l0l0l1088l6477l2-1.1.0.3.2.2l9l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1280&bih=602&wrapid=tlif131984648273710&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi

    page on Faverolles.. http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry//CGD/Favs/BRKFaverolles.html They don't have a picture of a Splash hen, but there's a rooster in there. And you can see the similarities in shape and conformation between those and yours (which are very pretty, btw!).

    The one in the center looks like a cochin. The one on the far left looks like a d'uccle. Whatever they are they are very pretty birds. I love them. [​IMG]

    Hi I appreciate all the attempts to help me. They are all siblings from the same flock. I'm still prayin' for eggs...that's why I got them.
