    Hi ! I was given these two chickens. No idea how old they are.

    The first one I know is a roo, A few weeks ago I thought a polish, but his crest is short and mohawkish,

    The second, a Silkie mix ? No clue of gender, It is a very sweet thing.

    [​IMG] It is a smallish chicken. The one on the left of it is a 7 week old barred leghorn. (just to compare size)

    Both look to be mixes.

    First polish mix with something (?) ....others may know better.

    Second, is definitely a Silkie bantam mix with a regular feathered bird...what I don't know...and it looks female to me...even color patterning, pullet looking body (?) but as a mix it's not fitting any category well...not Silkie body type nor feathered feather types...but it just looks "girlish" to me.

    My guesses.
