    Ok, I usually can figure my chickens out after they grow out some but I'm stumped on 2 bantam hens that I got. They are around 5 months old now. Not laying yet. One has lightly feathered legs and the other is clean legged. Both are the exact same coloring. And they both have muffs and a beard. The color doesn't show up very well on camera since they are so skittish it's hard to get a good one. They are a light grey/lavender color with red across their wings and some on their chest. I am thinking they could be Bantam Easter Eggers but they have the stance of a game hen. Any suggestions would be appreciated. These pics aren't the best but hopefully someone can make something out. Thanks everyone!

    I have a standard EE that looks like yours, similar coloring on the feathers with slate colored legs.

    That's what I've been thinking too. The only thing that throws me is her stance. It's not a great picture but you get the idea.
