I am brand new to the chicken world as my husband and I stumbled upon some chickens someone dumped near our home. We've talked about getting chickens for a while now so we gladly took them in. We've built them a coop and are feeding them some chicken feed a friend gave us and food scraps like greens and cooked lentils and such.
They are very small and we are wondering if they are bantams or just young. We are planning on taking them to the vet to get them sexed and maybe they can tell us?
Also they haven't laid any eggs yet. They did look like they were molting and it is January so maybe it's just not time? We are in California though so the climate is very mild.
Anyway, here are some pictures. What do you think? The black one looks like maybe a Japanese? Again, they are pretty small.. So just wondering if they are young? Do we need to feed them more? Thoughts please! Thank you!!
