kinda hard to see, but they look like they might be Red Junglefowl or Black Breasted Red Old English Game Bantams.
I was told maybe light brown leghorns but I have no clue..lol Got them from an auction last night and this whole chicken thing is new to me !
While the coloring is the same, Leghorns would have yellow legs and the hens/pullets should have bigger combs.
Do you know how old they are?
Light Brown Leghorns
Black breasted red Old English Game Bantam (note the cock's comb is dubbed in the illustration, naturally he would have a single comb):
Red Jungle Fowl:
They are very rotund, maybe some type of Guinea hybrid ;-)
No clue on age..ill try to get some better pics
My guess would be that they are Old English Game or game mixes.
Their color pattern would be Black Breasted Red, or a BB Red mix since the hens' leg color is wrong for a purebred BB Red Old English Game.
Are they gonna be good egg layers or good to eat ? Glad we only got a few and will be getting more chicks but not before alittle more research is done..lol
Usually, Old English Game are neither good egg layers or good eating birds. They are excellent at brooding their own eggs and chicks, however. Old English Game are one of the hardiest breeds of chicken as well and great foragers.
