    I inherited 4 chickens. i have no idea what breeds they are. We tried to integrate them but the small brown one is attacking my white one :( I heard if the brown small girl is a bantam she will kill my white one. I'm so nervous. Anyone know what they are?

    The brown one looks like a type of game bird, or maybe a wellsummer . How big is she? How long are her legs?

    The picture of the brown one alone is small she's the terorist of the group. Small and short legs. The brown on in the picture with the white one is much larger. She's my biggest one with a bit longer legs.

    You know... it might just be a Dutch Bantam. Look up a Dutch Bantam, they look a lot like the brown one [​IMG]

    First bird is a Cream Light Brown Dutch bantam. Second bird appears to be a Black Rosecomb. Not sure about the birds in the third photo; they may be mixes.

    Are bantams known to be aggressive towards other hens? I tried to integrate the two that look like mixes in with the first two. Did the whole visual introduction for a week and then put them together and the one that seems to be a bantam bullied the white one to the point she drew a bit of blood on her top knot.
