I don't have a pic yet but the hens are large, white and look like they were splashed with black paint, not heavily, just a few splashes of black hear and there.
Any opinions?

Hi ! Are they fluffy? Meaning, do they have loose feathers or tight ones? If they are fluffy, maybe they are Brahma type birds or if they have tight feathers maybe sussex ...or perhaps Jersey Giant mixes...hmmm, my guesses could be way off without a pic, you better scare up a camera!

Do they have large, floppy combs and yellow colored legs? If so, they are probably the California White. It's a type of Leghorn that is supposed to be a better layer than the White Leghorn and is used in Commercial laying for white eggs.
