    Ok.. these are 2 wee chickens I got about a months ago.They have not been growing much if at all. Now they kinda look like a mix of game and maybe Banty .They are tiny, long legged little buggers. I just dont know what breed they are. I am sure they are mixed..
    Any guesses?
    One I think is a rooster for sure..( same hatch date, same clutch ) and his tail feathers are way longer than other one.
    BUT.. they have been sparring an aweful lot lately. If other one is a rooster also, both of them have to go,sadly.But I think she is a hen.Hopefully.

    They are just so tiny and the whole body looks different. And the legs are so long.

    What would the color of the feathers indicate? (Breed)
    Just curious.

    Pics are not that good.. they dont like beeing chased by a mad woman with a metal box in front of her face

    I think she is a hen

    They both look like roos to me. As for mix? Perhaps they have some silver penciled Rock in them.

    Quote:Hehe...made me chuckle...as did the poster's "mad woman w/metal box" comment. That is too bad though, because they are both very pretty birds...love those speckles.
