I have two hens, they are the same in coloring except one is shorter, fluffier looking and has feathers on her feet.

Here is the first:
700

I think someone told me once that she is a silver laced wyndotte but I'm not sure.

Here is the other one:
400

You can sort of see her feet feathers in the first pic.
And her tail feathers fan out unlike the other hen who's tail feathers just kind of stick up and don't seem as fluffy.
Thanks! :)

Your first one is a Silver-Laced Wyandotte, and your second one appears to be a Silver-Laced Cochin. Both beautiful birds!

Thanks!
They really are! :)
My first can be a little aggressive at times but we love having her around anyway!

First is a silver laced Wyandotte, second is a silver laced cochin. Good on you for seeing the difference in body type! They also have different combs.

They do
I was thinking the second one was a brahma

edit-nevermind, ignore me I didn't pay close enough attention to the comb


They do look like similar birds though! :)
But hey you just taught me a new bird!
I am after all a newb! :)

lol I've learned so many new birds off this site. I've only recently bought a brahma so I did a bunch of research on it and now I guess it's on my mind and that's why I jumped to conclusions.
