    I bought this hen from a local chicken auction. I have searched and can not find another like her but she is very beautiful. I am new to the whole chicken thing but have fallen hard and fast. I love them so much. Anyway Annabell is silver or blue as it's called and she has small crest on her head. She is feather footed and has very full feathers. She lays an off white egg about the same size as my silkie eggs I am trying to hatch. She lays just about every day. She is bigger than my Belgian D'Uccle but not as big as some other breeds. I am uploading some photos hopefully BTCers can help me id her breed or maybe she is cross breed. Also the white hen I'm pretty sure she is a cochin but any comments on her would be appreciated also Thanks.

    They don't have feathered feet and they have red ear lobes. I say she is a mix of a few breeds. She is pretty though.

    Silkies have white earlobes, which is where she would have picked them up.

    The Silkies I'm used to seeing have a blue-ish color.
