    I'm confused on what breeds Sabbath and Bonbon are... Can someone help me? (P.S., this is my first thread!)

    The dark chicken looks like an Iowa Blue. Is she a smallish bird but not bantam?

    The second one is harder for me but here is a go anyway. \

    Is it a bantam? If so I am guessing Pyncheon hen.

    what country are you in, and did the birds come from a hatchery or breeder?

    We also need a better pic of the second bird. What color are her legs, any feathers on them, how many toes.

    Yes, full body shot of second bird is needed to be certain...but with the head shot, it looks like a Cream Crested Legbar..but would need to see rest of body.

    Top...doubtful Iowa Blue as those are rare, but possible. She may be a mix...but she looks like a Birchen Marans (leg featherless American style)....does she have a copper eye (hard to see fully in photo).

    My thoughts

    Ok, here's a better picture of the second hen[​IMG] She also has Gray-Blue legs clear of feathers and no extra toe. It's a bit fuzzy, sorry about that
