    Any guesses as to what they might be?

    The only primarily white one in the group. Obviously hen, but breed? She's standard size.

    I was thinking a black feather footed was possibly cochin but the comb isn't right for that.

    I see a lot of cochin in there, too. The black pullet looks like she might have some silkie, too, though. I'll bet you'll have some broodies if that's the case. [​IMG]

    ETA: They look like they've had it rough. I'm glad they found their way to someone who'll take good care of them. Rehoming most of the roos will do wonders for the girls' feathering.

    Thats right, the cochins are the little fatty chickens! Thats where they probably get that roundness.
    They were caught last night and were literally piled on top of each other in two small dog crates until I unloaded them at about 10am. So yeah, they look a little rough right now. Poor things.
