Thanks for the reply. An old timer (lol) (he is older than me) told they were American game hens. The person who lived down from me had pit bulls and several roosters. Never saw the roosters but heard them. Guess he had atleast one hen. He moved out and i guess he missed these 2 little girls. They come to my yard several times a day for water, a handfull of cracked corn and daily dust bath.Cool story! Out of curiosity, what breed were the wild chickens or possible escapees? Best of luck, and enjoy the incredible experience of raising chickens!
