    # 1. I can't figure out the breed of my chicken. I think it is a pullet, I hope she is a pullet! [​IMG] She is a bantam, I believe, smaller than the other one; and they are the same age, about 5 months now. They were same size when they were younger. No eggs yet. She has gray skin, gray shanks, five tows and feathered legs, gray pea comb. She is quite flighty too.

    # 2. I strongly believe this one is blue Ameraucana, but would like to get conformation from more experienced people. She is about 5 months old, has whitish skin, gray shanks, small muffs and beard, and also can fly quite high.

    Here both of them when they were younger, 2 months old

    The first hen looks like a Silkie maybe mixed with something silver laced or silver penciled. What? I haven't got a clue, she's very pretty though! Hen #2 is an easter egger, also very pretty :)

    Jamie,
    Bottoms of her feet are yellow. I have read descriptions of the breeds from several sources, and non of them mention color of the feet.
    Can you please recommend good detailed breeds description source.
