    My neighbor has a very large white hen with feathered legs. She lays brown eggs and is extremely sweet. Does anyone know what she is from my sorry description? The neighbors don't know as picked her up at a flea market years ago. I'm just curious and new to chickens so thought someone here might have a suggestion.

    Thanks, but don't think so unless she's part cochin as not nearly feathery enough, but I'll try to get a pic sometime. I've never posted a pic before so it will be a learning experience for this old girl.

    Cochin or brahma. It could be a mix. Solid white would be Cochin or cochin mix.

    It's so hard to tell without a photo. Also silkies and Faverolles have feathered legs along with some marans.

    To post a photo, you need to download to a photo hosting site like photobucket. Upload your photo there, copy the [​IMG] and paste here.

    Cochin, Brahma, Langshan... Pictures would really help but so would knowing things like the skin color, ear lobe color, type of comb, and if there are any colors on the hen besides white.
