    Hi, I'm new here. Last week my DH decided to go to the live stock auction to get this years pigs and decided to bid on some chickens. Well he brought home five, 2 buff silkies and 3 lovely bantam ladies. Unfortunately I have no idea what breed they are.

    Here are the first two

    And this is Cash (my lady in black, she has a greenish sheen to her feathers if you look at her the right way).

    Any help would be much appreciated!!!

    Thanks for the reply, I think they're kinda cute myself [​IMG] Very good girls, two of them are laying eggs and they are so cute and little.

    Quote:Agreed. #3 is a Black Rosecomb.

    ETA: oh wait, if there are indeed feathers on the legs it's a rosecomb cross.

    Number #1 (Priscilla with the beard) and #3 (Cash, my black with the green sheen) both have feathers on their feet.
