    Both pullets.

    Was that a trick question? They both look like pure Silkies, but the 2nd looks like a mixed color. Porcelain project bird maybe?

    Quote:Look like both girls. You mean color? They are bearded silkies. 1st one is blue 2nd one looks like a poor colored buff.

    Blue pullet, bearded, but not very well. (some would call this partially bearded)

    Mixed-colour pullet, definitely bearded (nice beard). She is not porcelain as the buff would be more diluted--a softer hue. But as was said, could be a porcelain project bird. Or simply a blue X buff pairing.

    OP, I believe you mean VARIETY, not BREED.
