    [​IMG]Hey everybody, I rescued these two cute little critters from the local flea market last week. They were out in 50' weather with no heat lamp and near frozen when I found them. I have absolutely no idea what breed these little guys are, any ideas?

    The one in front, feathering in gold with white skin, could be a buff Orpington. Hard to say what the white bird could be at this point, any number of breeds are possible. Most common are white Rock and Leghorn, but we can't really say yet.

    Post pics again when they're fully feathered and we'll have a better idea.

    Really? I was originally thinking golden sex link but I suppose I could be wrong.

    could be, but that looks like white/pink skin to me. that's an Orpington trait. RSL have yellow skin (hatchery stock, anyway).
