    Recently (well, maybe a month or so ago, but still all new to me!), an acquaintance dropped off some hens and a rooster that he was unable to care for any longer. They were...not in the best of conditions. However, they are much better, but I would like to know just what breed so I can further care for them correctly.

    Here are the photos:

    I don't really have good photos of the hens, sorry. They are not as easy to photograph as the rooster. (click on the thumbnail for a larger photo)

    These are more recent, but as you can tell, my camera is dying.

    I can attempt at better photos of the hens, but I'm still new to handling chickens and I don't want to upset or make them fly away. :|

    Some type of game, but I'm not a game person. I don't know. But guessing by those long legs...
  3. With the high stance, they look like they might be Modern Game or a Modern Game mix.
