    I am new to chickens and purchased two chickens as chicks from a farm, they are now 6 mths old and hugh! I do not know what breed they are. About 3 mths ago I went out to my back yard and found 3 more chickens , no one in the neighbor hood will claim them. There are two solid brown chickens and one very small white chicken. They all lay eggs everyday. Can someone help me identify what kind of chickens these are.

    Top image looks like a black star and a RIR or New hampsire. The second image, they could be alot of things including mixes, and the small white one looks kinda like a OEGB or a Serama <3

    You can also post your photos at "what breed or gender is this," for many more opinions.

    That's one way to increase the size of your flock!

    x2 on drumstick diva's referral to the "what breed/gender is this" thread.
