    Hey! New here and to the world of chickens. These are my first two chickies Coconut (the brn one) and Banana (the wht one) I bought them from a guy at our local flea market, and I'm not quite sure what breeds they are. We think that Banana is a White Leghorn but not for sure. And Coconut the guy said was a Quail Chicken? This is not a breed I have been able to find on the net so not too sure about that [​IMG]. Can't wait to know what my (what I hope to be girls) are!

    I've never heard of a Quail Chicken. Those both look like roosters to me.

    The white one could possibly be a leghorn, the other looks like a cross of somekind, maybe rhode island red cross. both roos though. Does the red one have a deformed leg? looks so in the photo.

    Well don't speckled sussex have that color feathering? I have a RIR Black Austerlorp that has red feathers with black speckles. The white one I think, looks like a leghorn. I just bought a leggy girl and she looks the same age as yours. If I could learn how to post pics I'd do it. By the way I love their names thats so cute![​IMG]
