    What are they? We got this hen and chicks and I don't know what they are. The person we got them from said they just put eggs under her and she hatched them. I know some look like cochins. I love them all but would love to know what they are.

    I'm not sure but I would guess EEs. It looks like the hen might be an EE crossed with a crested breed and then had mixed chicks. Probably just barnyard mixes. They sure are beautiful though! [​IMG]

    I don't think it has 5 toes. Will go look after this much needed rain.
