    I have 13 chickens. 2 of the hens, I have no idea of their breed.

    . D53283D9-D1C8-43F7-BFEC-252BB1A80B76.jpeg The hens are really pretty. One is white with black spots, the other is like a copper brown with silver bluish coloring on wings and tail. Can you help? Thanks!

    Can you get clearer pics of them without the wire in the way? Need to see combs and legs as well.

    And where did you get them?

    With wire in the way I'm going to say the first one is a RIR or Golden Comet or something along those lines. I think I see white in the tail, which would make it a mix. The second one looks like a Columbian Wyandotte mix or maybe some form of white Brahma (of course the feet would clear that up quickly). I'm going with two mixed breeds at this point- which of course lay perfectly good eggs!

    What chickens did you breed them from? Pure breeds? Mixes?

    Well, we actually got them bred. I’m not sure of their parents. We them got them after the people bred them. But we raised them and I have no idea of their parents.

    I didn’t mean to say we bred them. I was meaning we raised them.

    I think purebreds though. But I have no idea.
