    Look like mixes to me too, and they would have the same needs as any other chicken. Good luck with them :)

    Looks like two lovely hens of the barnyard variety. There is a lot of good information on this site about caring for chickens and I'd encourage you to read all that you can since 2 hens have been known to turn to 20 by a process known as "chicken math".
