    Here are two 21 week old chickens from an assorted straight run from Mcmurray's that I haven't Identified. I had a third one also, but he was mean and fighting all the time so...I ate him.

    Another shot of it with one with one of my Turkens.

    The other unidentified hen. Very small; about the size of a large pigeon. Her eggs aren't much bigger than quail eggs.

    Only thing she really resembles to me that they sell is a Silver Leghorn.

    They both have female feathering, so I would say that they are all pullets. She's not a Leghorn, Leghorns have white earlobes. I've seen many breeds with silver duckwing feathering, so could be a Phoenix. [​IMG]

    First is likely an EE. The second sounds like a bantam - Old English game?

    Your first hen is an Easter Egger as you suspected. Hen #2 could be a OEGB as keesmom said or a phoenix.

    How many toes on the last one? She looks just like my silver-grey dorking, which has 5 toes

    She has four toes, and she is small, Phoenix is a possibility, but she shouldn't be a bantam unless the hatchery made a mistake...
