    I couldn't resist these two blue beauties at our local feed store today. I have MY idea what they might be, and the feed store personnel have their idea, but first I'd like to hear from all of you. What breed are these?

    Thank you everyone! The langshan suggestion feels right to me! I had never seen that breed, but researching the description matches very well. Their posture and long legs are different from any chicken I've had.
