    Any guesses? One is missing a patch of fluff from on top of his/her head. A worker said they were trying to "get rid of it" and another customer commented that "it looks like a tasty nugget." So.... I had to get her and another so she wouldn't be alone. I have had many chickens in the past but adopted most of them as adults and none were bantams.

    Thanks in advance!
    Oh and I'm new here, so hello everyone [​IMG]

    They look like buff Cochins maybe? I'm guessing the bald patch one might be a boy and his friend is a girl.

    Hi and thank you :) I think you are right about roo and pullet. How ever they turn out to be is fine, they are safe and have a forever home together. Here's a newer picture of them

    Both are doing great! Their names are Isla and Sasha.

    The roo is for sure buff color, but the smaller one has lots of grey flecks in her wing feathers. Also has a grey spot on her head. So I'm not sure?

    I will get a better pic of the grey later, hard to see under their lamp.
