    I recently visited Lake Tibias Zoo; it is near harrisburg PA. While there my family saw a whole flock of free range chickens. They had a large variety of breeds and there was one that stood out to my wife and I. They were smaller in size im guessing cornish; they were a very nice yellow/peach color and had feathers down their legs and over there feet. They seemed pretty friendly and also seemed to out number the other varieties of birds there. When I asked one of the young girls working near by she didnt know anything about the breed and also didnt know where to point me to find out. I would love some help as I have searched online and a few books and still can not I.D this breed.

    :welcome Glad to have you join us! I'm not quite sure what breed that is. You can try posting in the "What breed/gender is this" thread. I'm sure maybe another BYC member will be able to help you out. :)

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] If you can post a pic or two of the chickens you saw in the What Breed Or Gender is This? section we can help you identify them. They sound pretty!
