    I got two pullets (um I really hope they're girls) from the Flea Market this past weekend. The gentleman said they were bantams.

    I don't know how old they are either. He said they would start laying soon. I'm sure he knew I knew nothing about chickens. Any hints on what to look for when they're close to laying?

    Oh and they have 5 toes. But one is like a creepy baby toe growing out of the side of a normal toe. Should I be worried?

    This one is Easy. Over isn't as friendly yet.

    And it looks like they're both still growing feathers in the back of their heads.

    those are silkie mixes possibly with d'uccle in them and look like pullets/hens..looks like a cockerel/rooster has been breeding them a lot and pulling feathers out. the 5th toe is normal on several breed and no cause of worry

    Oh my poor girls! Well I'm glad I got them out of that abusive relationship. Thanks for all the help. And I'm 99% sure you all are right. He showed me a picture of some silkies he's been breeding. Also glad they are girls. This is my first go. They could've sold me turkey vultures and I wouldn't know.
