    She was given to me as an unknown hen with her 2 babies that she hatched. Does anyone know what her and her babies are??? She has feathered feet and her babies are bigger than her now.. so im guessing that they are standards...???

    I'd guess that she's possibly part partridge cochin.

    Sometimes it's hard to tell a breed if it's crossed with something else. The hen looks like a Partridge Cochin or partly, anyway. In your pics, she looks like a bantam, but I couldn't swear to it. Can't tell who the babies' sire is.

    Looks like a bantam cochin--the babies look like something else--maybe the were a donated pair of eggs for her to hatch!
