    Hello there,

    please could some one help me ID two new hens my friend gave me,
    they are both small in size, about the size of a brown pullet
    the black one has a small tuft on her head and has a larger than usual tail
    the white one is pure white

    thanks Olpoll

    The black one could be a black sex-link.

    The black one looks like a silkie mix of some kind! From the small pulled back hairstyle to the fluffy fuzzy butt... Does the black one have 5 toes and feathered legs?

    The black one is a beauty!! That's one of the prettiest hens I've ever seen. I'd love to have some like that, although I have no idea what she is. Does she lay??? Do I see some white on her ear lobes??? I like that chicken!!!

    The black one could be a Black Sexlink or a Leghorn mix.
    The white one a Cornish or a White Rock.
