    Then we have two chickens we just got today, both younger, one is missing alot of feathers, but I think its because she was in a crouded cage, is that why? Is there anything I can do for her? Here are the newbies...

    Also what breeds are they?

    If i'm seeing right, your black hen has a rose comb, so i'd say it looks like a wyandotte.
    Don't know about your other one.

    Your new white one looks like could be a young red pyle old english

    for your old ones, just guesses,
    black banty cochin, gold comet (same as red sex link)? production red?
    for your new ones, red sex link cockerel, silkie mix or just poorly bred silkie

    how many toes does the new one have? (the one I think is a silkie)

    The red hen looks like our Cinnamon Queen red sex-link. The black looks like our Australorp, if she has a low single comb. Does she have black/grey legs and a green-irredescent shine to her feathers?

    Oh, rosyposyosy might be right about the black one if she's smaller than the red. I assumed they were both standards.

    well this one shines green in the sunlight..BRight green... and she has furry feet. her whole feet are feathers... Also lately she has been kicking me and biting me, I still love her but why the mood change all the sudden?

    Also the new little black shines a chocolate color,She also has furry feet, Also as you can see she needs to grow alot more feathers back... And where i buy them they are being sold as food, in tiny cages, most of them cant even stand up, they are loaded with other chickens with them as well. Id rather buy them from there than a petshop. They come more raggedy but they turn out beautiful in the end.

    You first two are a black cochin bantam and a red-sex link.

    For your two new ones, I think both are cross breeds. The first one could have some red pyle old english game bantam in her and your second one has some silkie in her.
