    [​IMG][​IMG]A neighbor found these little ones about 10 weeks after Easter, and asked if we would take them, since we have 4 chickens. What breed are these? They both have a small blue dot on their cheek or temple. [​IMG]

    Can we have some closer up pictures of their sides
    And heads so we can see their combs?

    Look like some type of game breed. Closer pictures would help.

    Hello!

    I am sorry to post this here but I can't figure out how to start a new thread.

    What breed bantam is this? She is my first and about 6-7 weeks old...

    The blue one looks very similar to a Blue Andalusian. The black one has nearly identical build so its likely its a Black Andalusian too seeing as they were found together. Both are pullets.
