    HI! im pretty new here and i got an issue with some tissues. (sorry for english)


    so my friend had few chickens around 6 chickens including a rooster but today he has 2. 3 of them escaped and 1 got bitten by a weasel. Now today these two chickens are left alone. ive been patient about egg laying but none of them don't produce. im guessing they are both males. They have been in that cage for about 4 month or more today.

    Now im thinking of some question that are reffered to these two innocent chickens like

    health benefits, type of chickens, cement and chickens etc..

    But right now i need help..i want to give these guys some fun [​IMG]


    Im planning to raise female chickens for them two ;).

    im wondering what type of chicken are these? what are the opposite sex of these two chickens? and are they aggressive to other chickens because they been locked up?

    My plan to raise female chickens http://www.mypetchicken.com/catalog/Day-Old-Baby-Chicks-c36.aspx

    how they look:

    [​IMG] They are OE game bantams. The first pictured is a rooster, and the second is a hen. What are you feeding them?

    Corn and water for confined birds does not provide enough nutritional value for egg production. Why get her a man? You already have one in the first picture. Get her a balanced ration, and you may get some eggs.

    You need a chicken food, not just corn. Where do you live?

    They kind of look like silver duck wing game bantams well the female does she looks just like my hen. The rooster might be a different type of game bantam. I would recommend feeding them egg layer feed. It has enough calcium in it for the hen and the rooster can eat it too.
