    A few days ago my rooster disappeared without a trace drove around looking for him every where. Then the next day just before nightfall I go to the coop and discover my roo is back and brought 2 new chicks with him. Can you identify theses chickens please.[​IMG]

    They look like sussex hens, but I'm no expert.

    Columbian Rock top, light Brahma bottom. Are they juveniles or do they look to be adults?

    They haven't laid an egg since their arrival. So I believe the are juveniles. They are at the bottom of the pecking order.

    They could be stressed out and being at the bottom is probably just because they are new. However, if you think they are young I am changing my vote to cokerel for the first bird. I still think the second could be a pullet. Can you get pictures of them, full view from the side.

    I agree. Although the top looks like it could be a bantam, seeing how its fairly small and it's comb is so red. The second is a young light Brahma pullet.

    I have no idea where these chickens came from. I think the top one might be a hen. It's extremely docile. Walks right up to me. The bottom one screams when I pick it up and the rooster eyeballs me like he wants to eat me lol.
