    Hi everyone! I'm new to the site and new to chickens in general. My son wanted chickens for his 6th birthday so here I am. Can anyone tell me what breed and gender these may be? We got them in a atwoods bantam bin. Thanks for any and all insight! [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    What cute little chickadees!

    If you can get a picture of them standing, including their legs, it would help figure out breed. Leg color and presence/absence of feathers are breed characteristics. And natural light is best.

    Hi! I am also new to the backyard chicken idea and have a similar yet different problem. Can anyone tell me if this little guy is a chicken or a turkey that [​IMG]was put in chicken bin by accident. I got him from Atwoods and there was no one available to help at the moment. When I got him/her home I noticed he sounded a little different and looked a little different. If it is a turkey will it be OK raising up by itself with three chickens?
