    The blue-ish girl does look very much like a cochin...the other one looks like a bantam brahma?

    You know, now that I look at them, they look rather ugly. Better ship them to me, immediately. [​IMG]

    (I [​IMG] them and find them to be beautiful, honestly.)

    the red one is actually bigger than the "blue" they are both standards .. the lady i got them from raises cochins.. and these two are between one and three years old but she want sure how old .. i honestly just wanted the blue girl lol .. but decided i should buy her a friend who she know so she isnt alone when i introduced her the the rest of the flock .. i know my difffernt age groups stay to them selves .. so figured .. these two would at least have each other .. [​IMG] the lady also had a gorgeous roo .. but i have wayyyyyyyyy to many awesome roos as it is ... lol =/ and so i figured selling nine roos and only coming back with two hens .. and money i didnt show up with .. i did good [​IMG]

    and thank you lol [​IMG] i think theyre very pretty as well =p

    Quote:I still think the one is a brahma...but I am more familiar with cochins myself..but the comb is wrong and the leg feathering you said is sparser... [​IMG]

    And I called her ugly first!!! LOL

    Seriously beautiful birds. I would have had to get them both too. [​IMG]

    I have no idea, but they are gorgeous! I love the neat pattern your blueish one has!

    No wait, they're so ugly, you better get rid of them. Let me PM you my address!

    [​IMG] im glad i have so many places to send my ugly girls lol [​IMG] ill try and get some picks of them seperatly today .. lol i named the "red" Pomona and the "blue" Kiaskari [​IMG] the lue is the sweeter of the two .. [​IMG] the lady i got them from "raises" cochins .. so these could be her projects .. becasue all of them had patterns similar to the red .. but kiaskari was the only one like her [​IMG] couldnt walk away lol .. several had been sold already that were pretty .. im veryyy surprised noone picked her up .. shes soooo pretty .. if i had a camera i would have got pics of the others for yall [​IMG]
