    I have several of these birds. They are 5-6 weeks old. Not sure if they are chickens or a type of quail/pheasant? The first bird has black and brown feathers with a few white ones, and a goldish ring around the neck, with a feathery head. The second bird has black, brown and some green feathers, and has a feathery head too. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    I agree they are chickens and probably Gold lace Polish crested mixes.

    I am guessing it is a polish chicken.

    When mine looked pale like that I found that they had lice, specifically the eggs were all over the back of their heads.

    I'd say a Golden Laced Polish crossed with something!

    Are their faces suppposed to be that light colored??

    I'd be looking close at those faces though, could be mites, or could have come from the type of cross.​
