I think they were bought by a neighbor as chicks but they have since moved and left them. They had been fending for themselves for a bit before they came here. They started hanging around the barn so I started feeding them. They go to the top of a tree above the barn at night. I do know I have a hen and a roo but what breed are they? They are small chickens, my cousin use to have silkies and they are not much bigger in size. Just in the last two weeks the roo started crowing and the hen started laying in a nest she built in the empty stall. I can't figure out how to post pictures... The Roo is in my avatar and the hen is black with white ear lobes and blue/grey around the eyes and a small red comb. Thanks..
