    What breed are the chickens below and how big do they get. Are they a normal sized chicken or some type of dorf. Please let me know I had these given to me today and need some assistance. Also the little ones that are only about 4 or so weeks old will not be quiet and have managed to attract the coys already and i just got them today.. What do you suggest i do about that if they are there in the morning.. I chased the coys off tonight but.. whos to say...

    Could be an OEGB (pure or mix) or a Japanese mix. I have a Japanese/something mixed bantam who looks just like her!

    Little ones that are 4 weeks old are noisy? Are they cold, maybe?

    Looks like a mix to me with the red earlobes. But it looks almost full grown.

    I'm not sure about the eggs- but I have heard they are great broodies.

    Yes, there are two I assume full grown hens that the others follow around all day long. Wherever they go the others go.
