    We have three Isa Browns that we got as 2 day old chicks and are 12 weeks old now. 5 weeks ago we acquired 2 new chicks (we were under the impression they were 2 - 3 weeks already) however they are a lot smaller than our Isa Browns were when they were getting their colouring and needing their wings clipped.
    We thought maybe they were Bantoms but now one is getting black feathers in its tail and both have little mohawks,

    If you have any thoughts as to what these little surprise chicks are (breed, gender) any input would be very grateful!!
    Thank you for reading!!

    They look like Polish crosses, did they come from a hatchery/feed store, or did you buy them from somebody?

    Thank You!! Yes, we were given them by a lady I work with and she got them from her son as an unexpected present. I think he got them from some fair or market?
    I will have to have a look at these Polish Cross.

    Thanks again!!
