    I recently went to a chicken farm to get some chicks and the guy there was showing me all his favorite birds. He had one that he like because he said they looked like eagles in the face. I agreed they did. Does any one know what breed this was?

    My friend had some white cochins, and they really did look like eagles in the face.

    I had some EEs that looked like eagles.....Beautiful really.....

    EE are most frequently regarded as having hawk-like or eagle-like appearances. Did he also happen to mention if they laid blue/green eggs?

    Muffs/beard and lay blue/green eggs then either ameracauna or Easter eggers...like sourland said - people say they look like hawks alot

    Also Brahmas with their wide heads and severe 'eyebrows' - (especially the darks) look like birds of prey. Brahmas are large and have feathered legs/feet

    People often say my easter eggers look like hawks. Especially when they are perched on their roosts surveying things.
