    Apologies for crashing someone elses thread. Please see attached photos.
    I only got these chickens 2 days ago and I rescued them from a pet shop who in my opinion were keeping them in unfair conditions.
    No laying just yet. They have feathers / hair on their legs. So beautiful.
    Any idea of the breed?

    Mutts. Just out of curiosity what constitutes "unfair" conditions?

    So the chickens aren't any specific breed in your opinion?

    Three of them were squeezed into a hamster cage with no water and a TINY amount of food. The cage was so small they couldn't move or turn around. I think thats pretty unfair.

    MKK - if you click on the pics they come up bigger.

    And that does sound mean keeping them cramped up like that! I'm a newbie but guessing some type of bantam, maybe sebright crosses or something?
