    Snowflake (white) is mixed but I dont know what with. Any ideas. They are both small bantams. sweetpea is pure something. I've never seen a chicken w/ such a red face. But then again I've been doing the whole poultry thing less then a year.[​IMG] Thanks.[​IMG]

    First one looks like a Buff Brahma and the other one could be a Lt. Brahma mix, possibly.

    Yes, but you could not see her feet in the original pictures. Anyway, it looks like you probably just have two Easter Egger hens - Any breed crossed with an Ameraucana or Araucana.

    Those look alot like my girls and they are Easter Eggers. But they are beautiful and lay the prettiest green and blue eggs for me.

    She could be an Easter Egger, but she appears clean-faced(no beard or muffs) so that's why I said Brahma. All I was going on was the head pic. Some hatchery Brahmas have almost no foot feathering. I have a Buff Brahma with very little.

    Then Snowflake could be EE/Brahma cross. You need to tell us these details so we can give you a better diagnosis. The green eggs would have been important to know.
