    I think these might be Silver Dorking Bantams but I am not sure. I just got them and I am new to chickens. Any help would be great, Thank you.

    The rooster looks like a Dorking! Not sure about the other though!

    Not sure! Love the blue female. I don't think the roo has the right coloring, body shape, or leg color for a Dorking, but I'm not really experienced with the bantam versions.

    Does that hen have feathers on her legs or is it just the pic?

    Not sure about the number of toes, will check in the morning.
    The hen does have feathers on her legs.

    Just throwing this out there...maybe they could both be Marans mixes?
    The rooster does look like a (miniature) Birchen Marans.
    Blue is an accepted color of Standard Marans & she has feathered legs.

    No matter what they are, they are just beautiful birds :)

    I would like to get a picture of the other hen on here soon. She is not laying, and is a little smaller so I think she might be younger and maybe an offspring of the two I have posted. She looks like the older hen but has silver in her neck.
