    I inherited a flock of chickens and have no idea what breed they are except that they are game birds. Very pretty, but I have no idea what they need to eat, if they frequently lay eggs, should they be separated, etc. I'm not sure how to attach a picture...lol

    Hi and welcome to BYC. Once you have taken the pics, I'd suggest posting on the gender / breed forum -
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    If you can feed them growers or all flock feed, with a separate feeder containing oyster shell, then it will accommodate your flock perfectly.

    Best wishes
