    Do you have any idea what kind of chickens these are? They were given to my husband by a guy at work who has lots and breeds them... my hubby can't seem to remember to ask what breed they are and I'm impatient... I have a guess but was wondering if anyone had any idea...they are both young 17 maybe 18 weeks....brother and sister... they were the soul survivors of a skunk attack. He killed 9 siblings and the mother :'( it was terrible. They lay white eggs and mother had no comb (possibly a pea comb, I can't remember for sure)..as soon as we got her, she started her clutch and hatched us 11 baby chicks and was very protective of them. Daddy was GORGEOUS and had a green tint, and nice big beautiful tail feathers. He was also murdered. (I took care of that skunk too)

    They look like Minorca or White Faced Black Spanish mixes.

    They look like Black or Dark Brown Leghorn mixes to me. I'm sorry about the skunk attack. [​IMG]
