    Hi,
    I got these chickens a couple weeks ago, and we arent sure what breed/gender they are. It is possible they are mixed breed.
    The person we got them from said he thinks one is male, other two are femal, but wasnt sure.
    it would be great if anyone could help us.
    Thank you.

    The comb on the darker one does look suspicious, but it is hard to tell for sure because they can always surprise you. [​IMG]
    And the breed I'm not sure about, they sort of look like they could be a mixture of something but it might be easier when they get a little older.

    Thank you for the welcome.
    Yeah, we thought the one with the red comb might be male, because it is larger than the other twos, and the others are yellow (not sure if that matters?) and the chick itself is larger.
    They could be bantams, the person we got them off quickley mentioned their breed, but none of us remembered lol, but we were sure it began with B, not that its much to go on haha.

    They are a little bigger now, so i will see about getting some new pictures, see if that helps.
    Thanks for your help.
