    A friend of mine had these 2 little birds left on their front porch in this basket. He sent me this picture and asked if they are chickens or just some kind of bird. I think their heads look kinda large but I'm really not sure what they are. Any guessers? Sorry the picture isn't too good.

    Baby birds don't have down on them like this.

    They look like chickens to me. Who would drop chicks off on someone's door step? How awful! :(

    I have no idea! I thought it was strange too. He is wanting to get rid of them and I wanted to find out if I even want to try and take them in.

    How sad. I would definitely keep the poor things. Everything needs a home.
