    My son wanted to add a couple of chickens to our flock, that are already laying. We went to the place that he normally buys his baby chicks, and found these two girls. The guy said they are laying blue eggs. I have 5 EE's already that aren't old enough to lay eggs yet. All multi colored, with green legs/feet. These are solid black with slate feet, but they have the tufts and beard like my EE's. What is throwing me off is the feathered feet. They're not feathered as heavily as my cochin, but they are feathered. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
    I'm uploading pics from photobucket, as I keep getting error messages when I try to upload them directly here.
