    THEY MAY BE MUTTS JUST LIKE ONES I HAVE. .. I had identical to that black one. I searched and came up with that she was a BLACK AUSTRALORP BANTAM. That more blond one looks like a combination of an OLD ENGLISH GAME HEN and ???? Maybe someone has better answers. They are fine looking chicks. [​IMG]

    They look like mixed breeds to me.

    They are definitely mixed breeds. They could have some Old English Game in them, and the lighter one looks like it could have some Sebright as well.

    Agree with the others...and I would check the buff one on the right carefully...it looks like it could have some scaly leg mite going on.

    You have good eyesight like mine. LOL What is the best treatment for those mites ????? I used Vaseline in the past because I prefer to avoid chemicals. NOTE that I said "preferred" I'm not paranoid of chemical or insecticide treatments when they are necessary.

    I've just used vaseline, but you have to keep retreating, applying regularly, until they are gone....so it takes consistency....for at least 2 weeks if not a month.

    EDITED to add: Oh, and I clean and spray the coop thoroughly with Orange Guard especially dousing the roosts to get rid of the hidden buggies there.
