    These two were dumped at my farm today. Any ideas what breed? They are young and boy can they fly like the dickens! I think the one on the left is a pullet and the one on the right is a Roo.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    :welcome!

    They're both roosters, which is probably why they were dumped on you. They look like Sicilian buttercups with those combs.

    Definitely look like young Sicilian Buttercup. WOW! Don't see those get dumped very often.

    I'd say Sicilian Buttercup mix, or poor quality. Their earlobes aren't white.

    Mixed breed roosters. They probably have Buttercup ancestry, but they're not pure. Note the lack of white lobes and different colored legs......

    shame on whoever dumped them as opposed to dealing with them personally.
