    They look like a game breed. Does that second one have a bloody face?

    i think she does yes i couldnt get close enough to look i didnt want her to run away my mom left the coop door open to lure her in i mean the chicken yard door not the coop

    the neighbor down the street has chickens in cages so if they were crowded they might have escaped and came over to our chickens cause they heard them

    Poor bloody hen, hope you can help her.
     
  5. Chickens are a flocking bird. So if the neighbor indeed kept breeding pairs in cages and they somehow were freed, I'll bet they would go to the nearest chicken noises. They do look on the small size like some sort of Game, but that is a guess at best. They could be a number of things, maybe even mutts [​IMG] worth keeping. Throw out some feed if your able to and that'll make those chickens happy.

    Look at that sandy soil. Is all of Florida like that? [​IMG]

    Could be a Game of cross of. Maybe some kind of asil/aseel, but there is really no telling.

    It's hard to tell with the lighting. Definitely some type of spangled Game Fowl.
