    These two were given to me and i dont have clue to what breeds they are, i think the brown one has a bit of silkie because of the blue on the side of her head, but other than that? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The first one is definitely part silkie, but I have no idea on the white one.

    They definitely look like mixes, but they are really neat looking! I love the first one, she looks like a silkie mix. The second one maybe a leghorn mix.

    They are both mixed pullets. The one on the left appears to be a silkie mix. I have no idea about the one on the right...Maybe a Leghorn mix?

    The brown one looks like silkie mixed with giraffe! Look at that neck! Seriously, idk.

    I also don't know what would make a comb like the white hens, maybe mixing a rose comb and a huge leghorn straight comb? Sorry I can't be more help.

    Does the white hen have feathered legs? Are they full size or bantams?

    The first hen has some Silkie in her for sure, and possibly some Old English Game too.
