Two hens I might be picking up from my in-laws.... what kind might they be? I really like them both.
They look like a Barnevelder and a Wyandotte to me.
The black and white one is a Silver laced Wyandotte and the brown one could be a barnevelder.
I highly doubt that the dark one is a Barnevelder. She is not NEARLY dark enough to be a barnevelder, and from what I'm seeing in the pic she doesn't have double lacing. My barnevelder from Ideal hatchery has much better color and lacing than that. I think it's a mutt.
The other is a silver laced wyandotte.
I think the dark one could definitely be a hatchery-quality Barnevelder. I have one from Ideal that has worse doulble-lacing than her (and one from the same hatch that has better, go figure).
thanks everyone..... what about the ROO? anyone got a guess based off the picture?

He's a cuckoo marans. He has white/pink feet
The roo is a Cuckoo Marans. (pink legs )
The brown one is either a really, really poor quality Barnevelder or a mutt.
The silver is a Silver Laced Wyandotte.
Quote:Weird. I've never seen one that bad - that's really bad if it is one. Almost as bad as my Red chantecler that looks like a golden comet without the white...
