    LOL! Yep- i had my suspicions about the one on the right, he is more curious and usually getting into things....[​IMG]

    i got them at Orchlens in a banty bin, no idea of breed or sex, but they are the sweetest little ones- wonder if having them as 'house chickens' might not be a good idea?? i have 5 standards, but when they are in the same enclosure they get chased so i have kept them separate
