    This is a hen (you should be getting eggs from her very soon, if you haven't already). She looks to be an Ancona.

    That is also a hen. [​IMG] I can't see the comb very well, but it looks like a rose comb, so she is probably a Dominque.

    First chicken: Mottled Ancona.
    Second chicken: Dominique.

    Both are females.

    First bird is a pullet, and is either an Exchequer Leghorn or Mottled Ancona. The second bird is a Dominique pullet.

    If her ear lobes are white, then yes. I tried to enlarge the picture to see, but it didn't work on my computer.

    I don't think her ear lobes are white. They are a rose color...I thought they may be white.

    Thank you. I love my girls. One has started picking on another so I'm not quite sure what to do. It is the Ancona picking on the Dominique...
