    I just received two chickens and I am having trouble figuring out the breed and possibly the age of these two ladies.

    It looks a bit like a Modern Game, long stilt-like legs and the game body type.

    i agree with the game type body and the stilts but the black skin is throwing me off, do game species have black legs?
