    Hi, these two chickens belong to my friend, and she was wonder what breeds they were. Number one is very small, I was wondering if she might be an oegb. Number two is full sized

    #1 does look like an Old English Game or Japanese Bantam mix. #2 looks like a mix.

    Does the pioneer breed of chickens have weird coloring and barring?

    I agree they are both mixes....I ponder if bird #1 might have some Seabright in her...or it could be the Japanese bantam...but she is not either of those breeds purely. A little game mix for sure.

    #2 looks to be layer types....quite the mixture...almost like a Rhodebar project gone wrong....barred parent on one side is all can be said.

    I enjoy my backyard mixes. They are colorful and fun to have.
