    I rescued the black one on thanksgiving bc he was getting hurt, & once he got better, the farmer offered me the other 3. And I have no idea what kind they are...but they sure are cute!! In some photos, I had just put dust on them to try and get them to bathe, they just don't have any interest in it. Maybe it's the dust, or the container. Idk.

    Hi,
    Oh they are just cute! I don't know what kind of chicken they are but I think all three are girls. Don't see any sign of comb development on them. What say the rest of ya'll out there on BYC?
    Best,
    Karen

    :) Yay! That would be ideal. And there are actually 4. The bottom two are the same kind as far as I can tell.

    If they all came from the same brood, I'm thinking they're all mixed breed birds. The black one could be a barred Rock, hard to tell at this point. But the others all look mixed.

    I think these are random eggs that the farmer wasn't sure exactly which chickens they belonged to. He said he had a hen that just kept wanting to sit so he just gave her some eggs. [​IMG][​IMG]
