Can anyone help with identification of these hens please? They were sold to me as Pekins, but obviously aren't. They are bantam size, all have rose combs, no leg or foot feathers.

Welcome to the forum.
You are correct, they are not Pekins.
They are poorly marked silver pencilled Wyandottes.
They should lay OK, would be great mothers, reliable setters and any cockerels you bred from them are ideal eating, with stuffing and roast veg much too big for a single meal for most men, would easily feed 2 people for a hearty meal.
