    ok so a few weekends ago my hubby brought me some cute little guys but i cant figure out what they are, Im 85% sure they are hens (they have rounded neck feathers).. ive asked others and all anyone can come up with is strange mix breed id like to see if we can narrow that down a bit.
    this is Chicken little
    [​IMG]chicken little and Tuesday have greyish legs and none of them have feathered legs

    Ya, Thursday looks like a boy and Little Bit kind of does also. Do you have any idea where they came from or anything that might help narrow down what mixes they are? It will also be easier to try and guess what they are when they have more adult feathers in.

    these little ones were picked up road side from a guy who had just been to a tractor supply critter swap and he bought a bunch of chickens.. he got them to sell them and was keeping them in dog carriers, so we bought them all even thou he wanted too much, just to save the poor things. he had no idea what he bought so we have no idea..


    how acurate is the neck feather sexing ???? cause they all have rounded off neck feathers???

    ok so after doing some reserch calculating in that one of them has no tail and two of them have light grey legs... could they be some sort of Araucana mix??
    also are they standards or Bantums?? they are about 6-7 weeks old. if the guy we got them from remembered correctly...

    it is hard to tell on both. Size is hard to tell with nothing in pics for comparison. little bit looks like a bantam not sure about the others
